INTRODUCTION 

Since this book is designed not only to save the faith of 
millions in God's word, but to greatly increase their faith, 
we give first in this INTRODUCTION a Biblical outline of 
faith, showing it from various angles, as God presents it in 
the Bible. 

Faith in General 

(1) What faith is— "Substance" and "Evidence" of 
the unseen (Heb. 11:1). 

(2) Without faith one cannot come to nor please God 
(Heb. 11:6). 

(3) Faith comes by hearing the word of God (Rom. 
10:17). 

(4) It is according to our faith when we believe the 
truth (Matt. 9:28, 29). 

(5) It is not according to our faith when we believe 
error (Gen. 37:31-33). 

(6) Jesus prayed that Peter's faith would not fail him 
(Luke 22:32). 

(7) The faithful are God's friends (Jas. 2:23). 

Seven Things to Believe 

(1) God (2 Chron. 20:20). 

(2) Prophets of God (2 Chron. 20:20). 

(3) Christ (Jno. 14:1). 

(4) Works of Christ (Jno. 10:38). 

(5) No certain place to worship God (Jno. 4 :21) . 

(6) That God and Christ are in Each Other (Jno. 
14:11). 

(7) The gospel (Mark 1:15). 

5 



Seven Kinds of Faith 

(1) Dead faith (Jas. 2:17). 

(2) Living faith (Jas. 2:17). 

(3) Perfect faith (Jas. 2:22). 

(4) Unity faith (Eph. 4:13). 

(5) Shield faith (Eph. 6:16). 

(6) Humility faith (Rom. 3:27). 

(7) Fruitful faith (Rom. 5:1-4). 

Seven Fruits of Faith 

(1) Peace (Rom. 5:1) 

(2) Access into His grace (Rom. 5:2). 

(3) Happiness (Rom. 5:2). 

(4) Glory in tribulation (Rom. 5:1-3). 

(5) Patience (Rom. 5:1-3). 

(6) Experience (Rom. 5:1-4). 

(7) Hope (Rom. 5:1-4). 

Faith Stands for Seven Things 

(1) Goodness of God (Rom. 3:3). 

(2) Our righteousness (Rom. 4:5). 

(3) The Word of Gocl (Rom. 10:8). 

(4) Scriptural legality of things (Rom. 14:22, 23) 

(5) The Church (Gal. 6:10). 

(6) Our breastplate (1 Thes. 5:8). 

(7) Our foundation (Heb. 6:1). 

Seven Things We Do By Faith 

(1) We become children of God (Gal. 3:26). 

(2) We live by faith (Rom. 1:17). 

(3) We stand by faith (2 Cor. 1:24). 

(4) We walk by faith (2 Cor. 5:7). 

(5) We pray by faith (Jas. 1:6). 

(6) We overcome the world by faith (1 Jno. 5:4), 

(7) We wait for our reward by faith (Gal. 5:5). 



Seven Major Promises to the Faithful 

(1) God's eyes are over them (Psa. 101 :6) . 

(2) They abound with blessings (Prov. 28:20). 

(3) Holy Spirit lives in them (Gal. 3 :14) . 

(4) Christ lives in them (Eph. 3:17). 

(5) Women cared for in motherhood (1 Tim. 2:15). 

(6) Their souls are saved (1 Peter 1:9). 

(7) They are crowned (Rev. 2:10). 

Jesus did not pray that Peter would not sleep that 
night while He prayed in Gethsemane; He did not pray 
that Peter would not run away when the Master was taken 
by His enemies; He did not pray that Peter would not 
deny Him that night; He did not pray that he would not 
swear that night; He did not pray that Peter would not 
curse and swear and deny his Lord ; He did not pray that 
Peter would not sin, but He did pray that his faith might 
not fail him (Luke 22:32). Jesus prays for us, but He 
does not pray that we may make no mistakes, but He 
does pray that we may not lose faith — faith in self — faith 
in humanity — faith in GOD. Jesus knew that as long as 
one has faith in God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, in 
others, and in self, he may fall a thousand times over, but 
there are not enough devils in the universe to keep him 
down — he will get up, and show himself a man. God can 
handle the man as long as he has faith. When he loses all 
faith, he has crossed the "dead line", he is a hopeless 
case. As long as a man has a Bible faith, he will do what 
God says. Therefore the Devil has done his best, is yet 
doing it, to destroy faith in the Bible. Hundreds of speak- 
ers, and much literature are used to discredit the Bible. 
In many of the educational institutions, from the grades to 
the highest Universities, much effort is being made to 



laugh out of the lives of the students any faith in God's 
word. It is all from the Devil. 

Because of the conditions mentioned in the foregoing, 
this book is prepared and sent out, that It may tell Its own 
story concerning Itself. It speaks with a thousand silver 
tongues from throats of gold. It defends Itself in the 
hands of every unselfish student who knows Its contents. 
We present in this book to our readers three hundred 
prophecies, and prove by the Bible that two hundred and 
eighty-five have been fulfilled literally, and the remaining 
fifteen are being fulfilled before our eyes. Ten of these 
I prophecies that are being fulfilled now concern Hying ma- 
chines. Nine times in the Old Testament it is prophesied 
that men would fly. Over a half chapter in the New Testa- 
ment describes the flying machine, exactly, including one 
completed by our Government in February, 1928, which 
discharges fire from both ends for war purposes. The 
automobile and wireless, or radio, are prophesied in the 
Old Testament, and they are given also in this book. 

There are over two thousand prophecies in both the 
Old and New Testaments, but we think it unnecessary to 
give in this book more than the three hundred mentioned. 
Three hundred proofs that the Bible is Inspired should be 
sufficient to save the faith of any one — the purpose of this 
book. 

To the Author, every book in the Bible is Inspired, yea, 
every verse in it. Were it in his power, he would write 
every word of the Scriptures in letters of gold, on sheets 
of silver, and bind it with pearl. More than that, were it in 
his power, he would write its every line upon all the heart- 
tablets of earth, and in each case would bind it with faith 
tried in the fire, that all might know the Lord, and do His 
will unto the saving of every soul. To the Author, the 

8 



Bible is from one angle a great paradise, in which are 
translucent streams, pellucid ponds, and the great River 
of life; from another angle, the Bible to him represents 
all the twenty-two kinds of Geology founded upon the 
"Rock of Ages", spread out under heavenly soil, out of 
which grow the seven Trees of Life; whereas, from an- 
other viewpoint, it is a great garden of flowers, in which 
grow the "Rose of Sharon", and the "Lily of the Valleys", 
and all of His faith-creatures are but unfolding buds that 
some day will bloom out into eternal life with God. The 
commands of the Bible are not grievous, and its promises 
are precious. Its Soul is God, and its hope eternal life. 
It is the only book that speaks to the heart, and gently lifts 
it to the highest heaven. It increases the joy of the happy, 
comforts the sorrowing, wipes away the tear, and leads 
wanderers to God. To the increasing of the faith of the 
faithful, and to the generating of belief in hearts of doubt, 
we send this book out in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, 
praying that the abounding blessings of heaven will at- 
tend it, make it to accomplish its purpose, and in it all 
glorify God in the saving of many souls. Amen. 

—THE AUTHOR. 



HOW TO TEACH THIS BOOK 

The art of teaching is one of the greatest in all the 
world. To be able at all times to inspire, to keep interest 
high, and to impart information, worth-while information, 
to others is one of the greatest accomplishments of man. 

The teacher of this book will find it profitable to fol- 
low the outline below in presenting the wonderful facts of 
this book to his class: 

He should first read, or have some member of the 
class to read the PROPHECY given in the Lesson, and 
then read its FULFILLMENT. 

One by one he should lecture to his class about each 
thought in the NOTE found between the semicolons or 
between the dashes. The NOTE furnishes an outline to be 
followed in discussing the prophecy and fulfillment. 

The teacher before going before his class should 
thoroughly study each prophecy and fulfillment in the 
Lesson, and make a new outline of facts to be discussed 
also in the class, retaining originality, a growth for him- 
self. 

The teacher before going before his class should 
also thoroughly acquaint himself with our suggestive 
notes, and be ready to lecture in an interesting way on the 
same. 

The teacher should quiz his class, draw them out, and 
have them to take part in the discussion of all points, 
for their interest will increase, if they take an active part, 
more than just to listen. 

The teacher should make every minute count, being 

highly interested himself, and keep the interest of each 

10 



student at welding heat— never allowing the interest to 
lag in the least. 

The teacher should emphasize each time a PROPH- 
ECY and its FULFILLMENT are studied that THE BIBLE 
IS INSPIRED, that It came from GOD, for that is the main 
purpose to accomplish in studying the Book. 

The teacher should constantly keep before the class 
the importance of having complete faith in the BIBLE, the 
great lives It has produced, and the reward of the faith- 
ful. 

The teacher should impress his class with the fact 
that they are studying the greatest Book in the world, not 
at his feet, but at the feet of GOD, that God is talking to 
man. 

The teacher should spend much time on his knees 
before coming before his class, that he may evidence the 
fact that he has been with God, and has a message for 
God's people — a message out of God's Book. 

This book may be taught on prayer meeting nights, 
using about half of the time to do it, or it may be taught 
Friday nights to a large BIBLE CLASS made up of every 
possible one in the community that will attend. Again, it 
should be taught in every class in the weekly B'ible 
Schools, classes ranging in ages from ten years and up. 
Educate all possible that the Bible is Inspired, that It came 
from God, that It is God's message to the soul, that It will 
lead sinners into being saints, and will lead saints into 
glory, and watch the results.

THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

that 

THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 



LESSON NO. 1 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Shiloh, Christ, Was to Come from the Tribe of 
Judah. 

Prophecy : "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, 
nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; 
and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be" (Gen. 
49:10). 

Fulfillment : "For it is evident that our Lord sprang out 
of Judah; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning 
priesthood" (Heb. 7:14). 

Note: Christ's progenitorship traced through Judah 
(Luke 3:33) ; He is called "The Lion of the tribe of Ju- 
dah" (Rev. 5:5); "Shiloh" means "Messiah" or "The 
great Prophet." 

(2) Christ Was to be Like Moses. 

Prophecy: The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a 
Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto 
me; unto Him ye shall hearken" (Deut. 18:15). 

Fulfillment: "For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A 
Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of 
your brethren, like unto me; Him shall ye hear in all 
things whatsoever He shall say unto you. And it shall 
come to pass, that every soul, who will not hear that 
Prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people" 
(Acts 3:22, 23; 7:37). 

Note: Moses was a lawgiver, and so is Christ; Moses 
was a teacher, so is Christ; Moses was a mediator, so is 
Christ; Moses was a judge, so is Christ. 

13 



14 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(3) Christ Was to Get His Message from God. 

Prophecy : "I will raise them up a Prophet from among 
their brethren, like unto thee, and will put My words in His 
mouth; and He shall speak unto them all that I shall com- 
mand Him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will 
not "hearken unto My words which He shall speak in My 
name, I will require it of him" (Deut. 18 :18, 19) . 

Fulfillment: "When ye have lifted up the Son of Man, 
then shall ye know that I am He, and that I do nothing of 
Myself; but as My Father hath taught Me, I speak these 
things" (Jno. 8:28). "For I have not spoken of Myself; 
but the Father that sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, 
what I should say, and what I should speak" (Jno. 12:49). 
"The words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: 
but the Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works" 
(Jno. 14:10). "I have given them the words which Thou 
gavest Me" (Jno. 17:8). 

Note: Moses taught doctrine from God, so did Christ; 
Christ passed His doctrine on through the Holy Spirit to 
the apostles (Acts 1:1, 2) ; the early Church continued in 
that doctrine (Acts 2:42). 

(4) Rulers Were to Take Counsel to Kill Christ. 

Prophecy: "Why do the heathen rage, and the people 
imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set them- 
selves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the 
Lord, and against His Anointed, saying, Let us break their 
bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us" 
(Psa. 2:1-3). 

Fulfillment: "Who by the mouth of Thy servant David 
hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine 
vain things ? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 15 

were gathered together against the Lord, and against His 
Christ. For of a truth against Thy holy Child Jesus, Whom 
Thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with 
the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered to- 
gether, for to do whatsoever Thy hand and Thy counsel 
determined before to be done" (Acts 4:25-28). 

Note : They were against both God and Christ ; kings 
and rulers were concerned; the Gentiles killed Him 
(Matt. 20:19). 

(5) Christ Was to be Set up as King on the "Holy Hill 
of Zion." 

Prophecy: "Yet have I set My King upon My holy 
hill of Zion" (Psa. 2:6). 

Fulfillment: "But ye are come unto Mount Sion, and 
unto the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and 
to an innumerable company of angels, to the General As- 
sembly and Church of the Firstborn, who are written in 
heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of 
just men made perfect, and to Jesus the Mediator of the 
new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh 
better things than that of Abel" (Heb. 12:22-24). "And I 
looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with 
Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Fath- 
er's name written in their foreheads" (Rev. 14:1). "And 
He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, 
KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" (Rev. 19:16). 

Note: This Mount Sion is the Church; Christ is there 
as King; God is there; angels are there; spirits of just men 
made perfect are there ; it is the family of two worlds (Eph. 
3:15). 

(6) Christ Was to Come as God's Son. 
Prophecy: "I will declare the decree: the Lord hath 



16 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

said unto Me, Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten 
Thee" (Psa. 2:7). 

Fulfillment : "God hath fulfilled the same unto us their 
children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again ; as it is also 
written in the second Psalm, Thou art My Son, this day 
have I begotten Thee" (Acts 13:33). "While he yet spake, 
behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a 
voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, 
in Whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him" (Matt. 17:5). 

Note : Emphasize the word "decree" — it was "decreed" 
that Christ was to come as God's Son ; He was to be God's 
"Begotten Son" ; Paul said It was fulfilled. 

(7) Children Were to Praise Christ. 

Prophecy: "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings 
hast Thou ordained strength because of Thine enemies, that 
Thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger" (Psa. 8 :2) . 

Fulfillment: "And when the chief priests and scribes 
saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children cry- 
ing in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David ; 
they were sore displeased, and said unto Him, Hearest Thou 
what these say? And Jesus said unto them, Yea; have ye 
never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings Thou 
hast perfected praise" (Matt. 21:15, 16) ? 

Note : Greatest thing ever brought to Christ is the faith 
of a child; the praise of children is "ordained strength" 
from God; the praise of children "stills the enemies" of 
Christ. 

(8) Christ Was to be Made Lower than Angels. 

Prophecy : "For Thou hast made Him a little lower than 
the angels, and hast crowned Him with glory and honor" 
(Psa. 8:5). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 17 

Fulfillment : "But we see Jesus, Who was made a little 
lower than the angels for- the suffering' of death, crowned 
with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should 
taste death for every man" (Heb. 2 :9) . 

Note : Angels are not mortal, cannot die, and Christ was 
made lower than they by dying, doing that which no angel 
could do; Christ's death for every man is grace from God; 
Christ glorified and crowned Himself by dying for us. 

(9) Christ Was to Have Universal Dominion. 

Prophecy: "Thou madest Him to have dominion over 
the works of Thy hands ; Thou hast put all things under His 
feet" (Psa. 8:6). 

Fulfillment: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, 
saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth" 
(Matt. 28:18). "For the Father judgeth no man, but hath 
committed all judgment unto the Son" (Jno. 5:22). 

Note : Christ has all power in heaven ; He has all power 
in earth; all judging will be done by Christ; He will judge 
according to the gospel (Rom. 2 :16) . 

(10) Christ Was to be Exalted at God's Right Hand. 

Prophecy: "I have set the Lord always before Me: be- 
cause He is at My right hand, I shall not be moved" (Psa. 
16:8). 

Fulfillment: "This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof 
we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of 
God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise 
of the Holy Spirit, He hath shed forth this, which ye now 
see and hear" (Acts 2:33). "But he, being full of the Holy 
Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory 
of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God" 
(Acts 7:55). 



18 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Note : Christ is ever before God ; He is a fixture, shall 
not be moved; He is on God's right hand, the preferred 
place; from His exalted place He gave the Holy Spirit; all 
good gifts come from above; how should we show appre- 
ciation ? 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 19 

LESSON NO. 2 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 
(1) Christ Was to Rise from the Dead. 

Prophecy: "Therefore My heart is glad, and My glory 
rejoiceth: My flesh also shall rest in hope. For Thou wilt 
not leave My soul in hell; neither wilt Thou suffer Thine 
holy One to see corruption" (Psa. 16:9, 10). "O Lord, 
Thou hast brought up My soul from the grave" (Psa. 
30:3). "And I took my Staff, even Beauty (Christ), and 
cut It asunder (Crucified Christ), that I might break My 
covenant which I had made with all the people. And It 
was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that 
waited upon Me knew that it was the word of the Lord. 
And I said unto them, If ye think good, give Me My price; 
and if not, forbear. So they weighed for My price thirty 
pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto Me, cast it unto 
the potter: a goodly price that I was prized at of them. 
And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the 
potter in the house of the Lord. Then I cut asunder Mine 
other Staff, even Bands (He rose from the dead — broke 
the bands of death), that I might break the brotherhood 
between Judah and Israel" (Zech. 11:10-14). 

Fulfillment: "Because Thou wilt not leave My soul in 
hell, neither wilt Thou suffer Thine holy One to see cor- 
ruption. Thou hast made known to Me the ways of life; 
Thou shalt make Me full of joy with Thy countenance. 
Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the 
patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his 
sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a 
prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to 



20 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, 
He would raise up Christ to sit on his throne ; he seeing 
this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that His 
soul was not left in hell, neither His flesh did see corrup- 
tion" (Acts 2:27-31). "But now is Christ risen from the 
dead, and become the Firstfruits of them that slept" 
(1 Cor. 15:20). 

Note : Christ's flesh went into the grave in "hope", 
because it was going to rise ; "hell" here means "the death 
state" ; Christ's flesh was not to decay in the least; Christ's 
soul was brought out of the grave of the "death state" ; 
the breaking of the "Beauty-Staff" was crucifying Christ; 
the breaking of the "Staff-Bands" was the breaking of the 
"death-bands", the resurrection of Christ; "If Christ be 
not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins" 
(1 Cor, 15 :17) ; if Christ did not rise from the dead, bap- 
tism is no good — see 1 Peter 3 :21. 

(2) Christ Was to be Made the Head of the Heathen, 

and They Were to Serve Him. 

Prophecy: "Thou hast delivered me from the striv- 
ings of the people; and Thou hast made Me the Head of 
the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve 
Me" (Psa. 18:43). 

Fulfillment: "Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, 
and said, It was necessary that the word of God should 
first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from 
you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, 
lo, we turn to the Gentiles" (Acts 13:46). "Now there- 
fore ye are no more strangers (Gentiles) and foreigners, 
but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the Household 
of God" (Eph. 2:19). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 21 

Note : Under Christ Jews have no advantage over 
Gentiles; by faith Gentiles are in the lead till their "ful- 
ness" comes in (Rom. 11 :25) . 

(3) Christ Was to be Crowned. 

Prophecy: "Thou settest a crown of pure gold on His 
head" (Psa. 21:3). 

Fulfillment: "His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on 
His head were many crowns" (Rev. 19:12). 

Note : Jesus here leads in a war of right against 
wrong; His many crowns show many victories; those fol- 
lowing Christ are not fighting losing battles — victory is 
sure. 

(4) Christ Was to fee the Most Blessed Forever. 

Prophecy: "For Thou hast made Him most blessed 
forever" (Psa. 21:6). 

Fulfillment: "Wherefore God also hath highly ex- 
alted Him, and given Him a name which is above every 
name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, 
of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under 
the earth; and that every tongue should confess that 
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" 
(Phil. 2:9-11). 

Note : Christ died on the cross to glorify God as well 
as to save sinners; God exalted Him for this above Him- 
self; three worlds, heaven, earth, and hell, will be on 
their knees to Christ, confessing Him to the Glory of God. 

(5) Christ Was to Say: "My God, My God, Why Hast 
Thou Forsaken Me?" 

Prophecy: "My God, My God, why hast Thou for- 
saken Me" (Psa. 22:1)? 



22 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried 
with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, Lamasabachthani? that 
is to say, My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken Me" 
(Matt. 27:46)? 

Note : God literally forsook His Son long enough for 
Jesus to feel what a sinner does when he is dying "without 
God, and without hope in the world" ; yes, Jesus came to 
taste the bitterest dregs that sinners taste that He might 
be the more able to get under all their sorrows and griefs; 
since Christ has felt what it means for a sinner to die 
without God, He leaves nothing undone to "snatch him 
from the brands of burning." 

(6) Christ Was to be Derided Concerning His Being 
Delivered from His Enemies. 

Prophecy: "He trusted on the Lord that He would 
deliver Him: let Him deliver Him, seeing He delighted in 
Him" (Psa. 22:8). 

Fulfillment: "He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him 
now, if He will have Him: for He said, I am the Son of 
God" (Matt. 27:43). 

Note : This took place when Christ was on the cross; 
Jesus would have been a liar, if He had been saved from 
the cross — He had taught He was to be crucified (Matt. 
20 :19) ; He won His great victory by His death and resur- 
rection; no other religious founder ever died and rose for 
his religion. 

(7) Christ Was to Suffer Great Thirst While Dying. 

Prophecy: "My strength is dried up like a potsherd; 
and My tongue cleaveth to My jaws; and Thou hast 
brought Me into the dust of death" (Psa. 22 :15) . 

Fulfillment: "After this, Jesus knowing that all things 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 23 

were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be ful- 
filled, saith, I thirst" (Jno. 19:28). 

Note: Thirst from crucifixion is said to be the worst 
in the world ; Christ's tongue from thirst stuck to His 
mouth ; we cannot know the full love-price Jesus paid for 
our souls; we should be most faithful to Him; a potsherd 
is a fragment or piece of a broken pot; Christ's mouth was 
to crack to pieces from thirst; we cannot know what 
Jesus suffered on the cross for us. 

(8) Christ's Hands and Feet Were to be Pierced. 

Prophecy: "For dogs have compassed Me: the assem- 
bly of the wicked have enclosed Me: They pierced My 
hands and My feet" (Psa. 22:16). 

Fulfillment: "The other disciples therefore said unto 
him, we have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Ex- 
cept I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and 
put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my 
hand into His side, I will not believe" (Jno. 20 :25) . "Then 
saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold 
My hands; and reach hither thy hand, thrust it into My 
side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas 
answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God" 
(Jno. 20:27, 28). 

Note : Those who crucified Christ were called "dogs" 
and "the assembly of the wicked" ; Thomas had an op- 
portunity to thrust his hand into Christ's side, and to see 
the nail-prints before he would believe; he saw, and be- 
lieved ; it is far greater for us to believe when we have not 
seen. 

(9) They Were to Part Christ's Garments, and Cast 
Lots for Them. 



24 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Prophecy : "They part My garments among them, and 
cast lots upon My vesture" (Psa. 22:18). 

Fulfillment: "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; 
for they know not what they do. And they parted His 
raiment, and cast lots" (Luke 23:34). 

Note : It was for His seamless coat that they cast lots; 
His other clothes the four Roman soldiers that crucified 
Him divided, "parted", among themselves — His clothes 
were their pay for killing Him. 

(10) Christ Was to Call His People Brethren, and 
Sing God's Praise in the Church. 

Prophecy: "I will declare Thy name unto My breth- 
ren: in the midst of the Congregation will I praise Thee" 
(Psa. 22:22). 

Fulfillment: "For both He that sanctifieth and they 
who are sanctified are all of one : for which cause He is 
not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, I will declare 
Thy name unto My brethren, in the midst of the Church 
will I sing praise unto Thee" (Heb. 2:11, 12). 

Note : Christ comes to the lowest depths when He calls 
Christians "brethren" ; through Christians he sings God's 
praise in the Church; He has made Himself one with us; 
we cannot thank Him enough for putting Himself on a 
common plane with us ; He came to the lowest depths and 
took hold of the worst of sinners and will lift them to the 
highest heaven.

LESSON NO. 3 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Preaching Christ Was to Cause People to be 
"Born", Regenerated. 

Prophecy: "They shall come, and shall declare His 
righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that He 
hath done this" (Psa. 22:31). 

Fulfillment: "Jesus answered and said unto him, 
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born 
again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus 
saith unto Him, How can a man be born when he is old? 
can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and 
be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 
Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he can- 
not enter into the kingdom of God" ( Jno. 3 :3-5) . 

Note: They have to be "born of the flesh" to be- 
come "people"; here "people", those born once, of the 
flesh, have to be "born", a second birth ; this is a birth in- 
to Christ's kingdom-family. 

(2) The Ascension of Christ Foretold Beautifully. 
Prophecy: "Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be 

ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory 
shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong 
and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, 
O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and 
the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of 
glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory" (Psa. 
24:7-10). 

Fulfillment: "And when He had spoken these things, 
while they beheld, He was taken up ; and a cloud received 



26 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly 
toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by 
them in white apparel ; Who also said, Ye men of Galilee, 
why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, 
Who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in 
like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven" (Acts 
1:9-11). 

Note: David said He would ascend into heaven; 
human witnesses said He did ascend into heaven; angel 
witnesses said He did ; we accept the testimony. 

(3) Christ Was to Teach Sinners in the Way. 

Prophecy: "Good and upright is the Lord: therefore 
will He teach sinners in the way" (Psa. 25 :8) . 

Fulfillment: "But go ye and learn what that meaneth, 
I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come 
to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Matt. 
9:13). 

Note: Christ was the first Teacher interested in sin- 
ners; He teaches them "the way" — the Christ-Way home; 
all sinners should love and accept Christ. 

(4) False Witnesses Were to Testify Against Christ. 

Prophecy : "Deliver Me not over unto the will of Mine 
enemies : for false witnesses are risen up against Me, and 
such as breathe out cruelty" (Psa. 27:12). 

Fulfillment: "Now the chief priests, and elders, and 
all the council sought false witnesses against Jesus, to put 
Him to death; but found none: yea, though many false 
witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came 
two false witnesses, and said, This Fellow said, I am able 
to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three 
days" (Matt. 26:59-61). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 27 

Note : These are "false witnesses" ; they lied about 
Jesus; their false testimony caused His crucifixion; the 
unfaithful lives of Christians witness against Him now, 
causing Him to be crucified afresh and put to open shame 
(Heb. 6:4-6). 

(5) Christ Was to he Anointed. 

Prophecy : "The Lord is their Strength, and He is the 
saving Strength of His Anointed" (Psa. 28:8). 

Fulfillment: "Thou hast loved righteousness, and 
hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, anointed 
Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows" (Heb. 
1:9). 

Note: Christ came in the strength of His Father; He 
glorified God; God anointed Him; in our lives we should 
exalt Him. 

(6) Christ Was to Commit His Spirit to God. 

Prophecy: "Into Thine hand I commit My Spirit" 
(Psa. 31:5). 

Fulfillment: "And when Jesus had cried with a loud 
voice, He said, Father, into Thy Hands I commend My 
Spirit" (Luke 23:46). 

Note: His enemies killed His body; they could not 
determine the destiny of His Spirit; Christian living will 
make it all right when our spirits are turned over to God 
in the judgment. 

(7) Christ Was to be Reproached by Enemies, and 
Forsaken by Friends. 

Prophecy: "I was a Reproach among all Mine enemies, 
but especially among My neighbors, and a Fear to Mine 
acquaintance : they that did see Me without fled from Me" 
(Psa. 31:11). 



28 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "In the same hour said Jesus to the mul- 
titudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords 
and staves for to take Me? I sat daily with you teaching 
in the temple, and ye laid no hold on Me. But all this was 
done, that the Scriptures of the prophets might be ful- 
filled. Then all His disciples forsook Him, and fled" 
(Matt. 26:55, 56). 

Note : It is bad to have enemies seeking our hurt; it is 
worse when our friends forsake us when we need friends 
most; we should be sure to be friends to others when they 
need us. 

(8) Christ Was to be as a Broken Vessel, and Forgot- 
ten as a Dead Man, 

Prophecy: "I am forgotten as a dead man out ;of 
mind : I am like a broken vessel" (Psa. 31 :12) . 

Fulfillment: "And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and 
gave up the ghost" (Mark 15 :37) . "Now when Jesus was 
risen early the first day of the week, Pie appeared first to 
Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven devils. 
And she went and told them that had been with Him, as 
they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard 
that He was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not" 
(Mark 16:9-11). 

Note : His disciples had so forgotten His teachings, so 
forgotten Him, that they did not believe He had risen ; He 
is truly "broken" for us (1 Cor. 11:24). 

(9) Christ's Bones Were not to fee Broken. 

Prophecy: "He keepeth all His bones: not one of 
them is broken" (Psa. 34:20). 

Fulfillment: "For these things were done, that the 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 29 

Scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of Him shall not be 
broken" (Jno. 19:36). 

Note: These are not meaningless prophecies; unin- 
spired men could not have foretold such things. 

(10) Christ Was to be Rewarded Evil for Good. 

Prophecy: "They rewarded Me evil for good to the 
spoiling of My soul" (Psa. 35:12). 

Fulfillment: "Jesus answered them, Many good works 
have I shown you from My Father; for which of these 
works do ye stone Me" (Jno. 10:32) ? 

Note: Jesus never did wrong (Heb. 4:15); highest 
courts said He was innocent; therefore, He was lynched 
for being good. 



30 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 4 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

( 1 ) Christ Was to he Hated Without a Cause. 

Prophecy: "Let not them that are Mine enemies 
wrongfully rejoice over Me: neither let them wink with 
the eye that hate Me without a cause" (Psa. 35:19). 

Fulfillment: "But this cometh to pass, that the word 
might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated 
Me without a cause" ( Jno. 15 :25) . 

Note: They literally hated Christ; some hate Him 
now; His worst enemies are unfaithful, so-called Chris- 
tians. 

(2) Christ's Familiar Friend, Judas, Was to Lift up 
His Heel Against Him. 

Prophecy: "Yea, Mine own familiar friend, in whom 
I trusted, who did eat of My bread, hath lifted up his 
heel against Me" (Psa. 41:9). 

Fulfillment: "I speak not of you all: I know whom I 
have chosen: but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He 
that eateth bread with Me hath lifted up his heel against 
Me" (Jno. 13:18). 

Note: Judas bit the hand that fed him; men are 
treated the same way; so-called Christians treat Christ 
that way now. 

(3) Christ's Tears Were to be His Meat. 

Prophecy: "My tears have been My meat day and 
night, while they continually say unto Me, Where is Thy 
God" (Psa. 42:3)? 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 31 

Fulfillment: ''Who in the days of His flesh, when He 
had offered up prayers and supplications with strong cry- 
ing and tears unto Him that was able to save Him from 
death, and was heard in that He feared" (Heb. 5:7). 

Note: Jesus wept much; He wept over Jerusalem 
(Luke 19 :41) ; He wept over dead Lazarus (Jno. 11 :35) ; 
He wept in Gethsemane (Heb. 5:7); tradition says He 
was never seen to smile, but often wept. 

(4) Christ Was to Go to The Altar, The Cross. 

Prophecy : "Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto 
God My exceeding joy" (Psa. 43:4). 

Fulfillment: "And they crucified Him" (Matt. 27:35). 

Note : David saw the cross-altar a thousand years be- 
fore Christ died upon it; Christ went to God by the way 
of the cross-altar; that is the way we go to God (Gal. 
5:24; 6:14). 

(5) Christ's Followers Were to Suffer a Living Death 
for Him. 

Prophecy: "Yea, for Thy sake we are killed all the 
day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter" 
(Psa. 44:22). 

Fulfillment: "As it is written, for Thy sake we are 
killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the 
slaughter" (Rom. 8:36). 

Note: Christ went through a living death for us; we 
should suffer the same for Him; He gave His life for us; 
we should give all to Him. 

(6) Grace Was to Be Poured into Christ's Lips. 

Prophecy : "Thou art fairer than the children of men : 
grace is poured into Thy lips" (Psa. 45:2). 



32 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "And all bare Him witness, and wonder- 
ed at the gracious words which proceeded out of His 
mouth" (Luke 4:22). 

Note : The children of men were not as fair as this 
One was, showing He was not human; grace was poured 
into His lips; He poured out this grace to others; we 
should receive from God, and pass the same on to others; 
no one can be Christian and not bless others with his own 
blessings from heaven. 

(7) Christ Was to Have a Sword. 

Prophecy : "Gird Thy Sword upon Thy thigh, O most 
Mighty, with Thy glory and Thy majesty" (Psa. 45:3). 

Fulfillment: "And out of His mouth goeth a sharp 
Sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and 
He shall rule them with a Rod of iron: and He treadeth 
the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty 
God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a 
name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" 
(Rev. 19:15, 16). 

Note: In glory and majesty He was to wear the 
Sword upon His thigh, denoting great authority; this 
Sword is the Word of God (Heb. 4 :12 ; Eph. 6 :17) ; with 
this Sword-Book Christ is to overcome and rule the na- 
tions; He wears upon His thigh a name denoting authority 
over all peoples; the use of the Bible-Sword brings to Him 
the glory-name worn upon His thigh. 

(8) Christ Was to Have a Gold-dressed Queen — the 
Church. 

Prophecy : "Upon Thy right hand did stand the Queen 
in gold of Ophir" (Psa. 45:9). "The king's daughter is 
all glorious within ; her clothing is of wrought gold. She 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 33 

shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework: 
the virgins her companions that follow her shall be 
brought unto Thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall 
they be brought: they shall enter into the King's palace" 
(Psa. 45:13-15). 

Fulfillment: "And there came unto me one of the 
seven angels that had the seven vials full of the seven last 
plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will 
show thee the Bride, the Lamb's Wife. And he carried me 
away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and 
showed me that great City, the holy Jerusalem, descend- 
ing out of heaven from God" (Rev. 21:9, 10). "And the 
building of the wall of it was of Jasper: and the City 
was pure goTH, like unto clear glass" (Rev. 21 :18). 

Note: The prophet saw Christ's Queen-Bride, the 
Church, in a gold dress; John saw a great City called 
"The Bride, the Lamb's W T ife," and that City was pure 
gold, in perfect keeping with David's gold-dressed Queen 
at Christ's right hand; the gold-dress denotes purification 
by fires; the white gold, like clear glass, denotes God's 
word (2 Cor. 3 :18) ; every Christian should be pure gold. 

(9) Christ Was to Make Princes of His Followers. 

Prophecy : "Instead of Thy fathers shall be Thy chil- 
dren, whom Thou mayest make princes in all the earth" 
(Psa. 45:16). 

Fulfillment: "And from Jesus Christ, Who is the 
faithful Witness, and the First begotten of the dead, and 
the Prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved 
us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and 
hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; 



34 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever" (Rev. 
1:5,6). 

Note : We are kings and priests by Christ's own mak- 
ing; He is King over us kings; we should be loyally sub- 
ject to Him in all things for the honor bestowed upon us 
by Him. 

(10) Christ Was to Give to Humanity a River That 

Would Make Glad His People. 

Prophecy: "There is a River, the streams whereof 
shall make glad the City of God, the holy place of the 
tabernacles of the most High" (Psa. 46:4). See also Eze. 
47:1-14. 

Fulfillment: "And he showed me a pure River of 
water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne 
of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, 
and on either side of the River, was there the Tree of Life, 
Which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit 
every month : and the leaves of the Tree were for the 
healing of the nations" (Rev. 22:1-3). 

Note : This River of Salvation gladdens the whole 
"City of God", the Church; It is a pure River; It is a River 
of Life; It proceeds from God and the Lamb; the leaves 
of the Tree are for the "healing of the nations" ; then, the 
unsaved may come and be healed, be saved.

LESSON NO. 5 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ's Enemies Were to Oppress Him Greatly. 

Prophecy: "Be merciful unto Me, God: for man 
would swallow Me up; he fighting daily oppresseth Me. 
Mine enemies would daily swallow Me up; for they be 
many that fight against Me, O Thou most High" (Psa. 
56: 1, 2). 

Fulfillment: "Then from that day forth they took 
counsel together for to put Him to death" (Jno. 11:53). 

Note : The expression "man would swallow Me up" 
shows that it was not a "man" talking — He was more 
than man; Christ had many enemies, but He kept on to 
success; nothing should discourage His followers. 

(2) Christ Was Not to Fear What Flesh Could Do to 
Him. 

Prophecy: "I will not fear what flesh can do to Me" 
(Psa. 56:4). 

Fulfillment: "Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again 
thy sword into his place : for all they that take the sword 
shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot 
now pray to My Father, and He shall presently give Me 
more than twelve legions of angels" (Matt. 26:52, 53) ? 

Note: Jesus feared no man; He could call out twelve 
legions of angels instantly — a Roman legion varied from 
three thousand three hundred to six thousand soldiers — 
Jesus must have referred to at least fifty thousand angels; 
Christians are not to fear what man can do to them (Heb. 
13:6). 



36 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(3) They Were to Try to Wrest the Words of Christ. 

Prophecy : ''Every day they wrest My words : all their 
thoughts are against Me for evil" (Psa. 56:5). 

Fulfillment: ''And they sent unto Him certain of the 
Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch Him in His 
words" (Mark 12:13). 

Note : Time and time again they tried to wrest His 
words, each time a failure ; all their thoughts were against 
Him. 

(4) Christ's Enemies Were t© Hide Around, Trying 
to Hurt Him. 

i Prophecy: "They gather themselves together, they 
hide themselves, they mark My steps, when they wait for 
My soul" (Psa. 56:6). 

Fulfillment: "Then from that day forth they took 
counsel together for to put Him to death" (Jno. 11:53). 

Note : They organized against Christ — took counsel 
together; they hid about, slipped around, to do Him hurt; 
there is nothing hidden that shall not be made manifest, 
said Christ. 

(5) By Prayer Christ Was to Drive Sack His Enemies. 

Prophecy : "When I cry unto Thee, then shall Mine 
enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for Me" (Psa. 
56:9). 

Fulfillment: "And when the tempter came to Him, 
he said, If Thou be the Son of God, command that these 
stones be made bread. But He answered and said, It is 
written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every 
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matt. 
4 :3, 4) . "Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from 
Me: nevertheless not My will, but Thine, be done. And' 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 37 

there appeared an angel unto Him from heaven, strength- 
ening Him" (Luke 22:42, 43). 

Note: Satan thought He would overcome Christ in 
Gethsemane, that He would die in the Garden that night, 
but prayer brought an angel and strength — the Devil had 
to go away; prayer will do much for us during tempta- 
tion; 'Tray that ye enter not into temptation" (Luke 
22:40). 

(6) Christ Was to Exalt and Glorify God. 

Prophecy: "Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heav- 
ens; let Thy glory be above all the earth" (Psa. 57:5). 

Fulfillment: "I have glorified Thee on the earth; I 
have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do" 
(Jno. 17:4). 

Note: Christ exalted and glorified God by doing 
what was assigned to Him by His Father; Paul finished 
his work for God (2 Tim. 4:7) ; are we going to finish 
what He wants us to do? 

(7) Christ Was to be God's "Beloved". 

Prophecy: "That Thy Beloved may be delivered" 
(Psa. 60:5). 

Fulfillment: "And behold a voice out of the cloud, 
which said, This is My Beloved Son, in Whom I am well 
pleased; hear ye Him" (Matt. 17:5). 

Note: God loved Christ, and sent Him to be the 
world's Teacher; God loves all who obey Him. 

(8) Christ Was to be Perfect. 

Prophecy: "That they may shoot in secret at the Per- 
fect" (Psa. 64:4). 



38 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "And being made perfect, He became 
the Author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey 
Him" (Heb. 5:9). 

Note : Christ was sinless (Heb. 4:15) ; He is the world's 
perfect Example ; He wants us to grow daily toward per- 
fection. 

(9) Christ Was to Calm Stormy Seas. 

Prophecy: "Who stilleth the noise of the seas, the 
noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people" (Psa. 
65:7). 

Fulfillment: "Then He arose, and rebuked the winds 
and the sea; and there was a great calm" (Matt. 8:26). 

Note: How did David know that a thousand years 
later Christ would calm the seas? Only by Inspiration; 
the Bible is surely Inspired. 

(10) Angels Were to be With Christ in His Holy 
Place, the Church. 

Prophecy : "The chariots of God are twenty thousand, 
even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in 
Sinai, in the Holy Place" (Psa. 68:17). 

Fulfillment: "But ye are come unto Mount Sion, and 
unto the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, 
and to an innumerable company of angels, to the General 
Assembly and Church of the First-born, who are written 
in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits 
of just men made perfect, and to Jesus the Mediator of 
the new Covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that 
speaketh better things than that of Abel" (Heb. 12 :22-24) . 

Note : We learn here that angels without number are 
with Christ in His Church ; angels will be with Him when 
He comes to judge the world (Matt. 25:31-46) ; angels 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 39 

are subject to Christ (1 Peter 3:22) ; angels are servants 
to Christians (Heb. 1 :14) ; saints will judge angels (1 Cor. 
6:3). 



40 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 6 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Restore That Which He Took Not 
Away— -Life. 

Prophecy: "They that hate Me without a cause are 
more than the hairs of Mine head : they that would des- 
troy Me, being Mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: 
then I restored that which I took not away" (Psa. 69 :4) . 

Fulfillment: "I am come that they might have life, 
and that they might have it more abundantly" (Jno. 
10:10). 

Note: Man lived a long time at first; sin shortened 
man's life ; Christ came to destroy sin and the Devil 
(1 Jno. 3:5, 8) ; Christ took not His own life from Him- 
self, but in the resurrection He restored that which He 
took not away — His own life. 

(2) Christ Was to Suffer Reproach, and Shame. 

Prophecy: "Because for Thy sake I have borne re- 
proach; shame hath covered My face" (Psa. 69:7). 

Fulfillment: "Looking unto Jesus the Author and 
Finisher of our faith; who for the joy set before Him en- 
dured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at 
the right hand of the throne of Cod" (Heb. 12:2). 

Note : Christ did bear our reproach ; He bore the 
shame of the cross; He despised that shame, but endured 
it for our sakes; we should do all to glorify Him in the 
best living possible. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 41 

(3) Jesus Was to Become a Stranger and an Alien to 
His Relatives. 

Prophecy: "I am become a Stranger unto My breth- 
ren, and an Alien unto My mother's children" (Psa. 69 :8). 

Fulfillment: "For neither did His brethren believe in 
Him" (Jno. 7:5). 

Note : It was hard on Christ for many not to believe 
in Him ; it was far worse when His relatives, His half 
brothers and sisters, did not believe in Him; do we satisfy 
Him with our faith? 

(4) Jewish Zeal Was to Eat up Christ. 

Prophecy : For the zeal of Thine house hath eaten Me 
up" (Psa. 69:9). 

Fulfillment: "And said unto them that sold doves, 
Take these things hence ; make not My Father's house an 
house of merchandise. And His disciples remembered 
that it was written, The zeal of Thine house hath eaten 
Me up" (Jno. 2:16, 17). 

Note: The Jews had zeal without knowledge (Rom. 
10:2) ; they had zeal for the wrong things; are we sure 
we are zealous for only Scriptural things? 

(5) The Reproaches Heaped upon God by Sinners 
Were to Fall upon Christ. 

Prophecy: "The reproaches of them that reproached 
Thee are fallen upon Me" (Psa. 69 :9) . 

Fulfillment: "For even Christ pleased not Himself; 
but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that re- 
proached Thee fell on Me" (Rom. 15:3). 

Note: God bore a long time the reproach of sinners; 
Jesus came and suffered them, and then gave His own 
blood to wash them away.

(6) Christ Was to Chasten His Soul with Fasting. 

Prophecy: "When I wept, and chastened My soul with 
fasting, that was to My reproach" (Psa. 69:10). 

Fulfillment: "Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into 
the wilderness to be tempted of the Devil. And when He 
had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward 
an hungered" (Matt. 4:1, 2). 

Note : It was the prophet that told us WHY Jesus 
fasted. It was to chasten His soul, to get strength to over- 
come the Devil in the great temptation in the wilderness; 
if we would fast and pray more, the Devil would have 
less power over us; Daniel was made great by fasting and 
prayer (Dan. 10:1-21). 

(7) Jesus Was to Look for Human Pity and Sym- 
pathy Without Finding It. 

Prophecy: "Reproach hath broken My heart; and I 
am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, 
but there was none ; and for comforters, but I found none 
(Psa. 69:20). 

Fulfillment: "And He taketh with Him Peter and 
James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be 
very heavy; and saith unto them, My soul is exceedingly 
sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch" (Mark 
14:33, 34). "And He cometh, and findeth them sleeping, 
and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not 
thou watch one hour?" (Mark 14:37). And they all for- 
sook Him, and fled" (Mark 14:50). 

Note : Our hearts here melt in tears for Jesus ; He was so 
very sorrowful that He was about to die in Gethsemane that 
night, and called upon His best friends to watch and pray 
with Him, but they failed Him; He looked for pity and 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 43 

comfort, and found none, just as the prophet had said; 
how much does He get from us? 

(8) They Were to Give Christ Vinegar and Gall. 

Prophecy: "They gave Me also gall for my meat; and 
in my thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink" (Psa. 69 :21) . 

Fulfillment: "They gave Him vinegar to drink min- 
gled with gall" (Matt. 27:34). 

Note : The Old Testament here says They would give Him 
vinegar and gall, and the New Testament says They did 
do it; surely the Bible is Inspired of God; what do we as 
Christians give Him to eat and drink? We can feed Him, 
can give Him drink (Matt. 25: 34-45). 

(9) Christ Was to be More Pleasing to God as a Sac- 
rifice Than Beasts Were. 

Prophecy : 'This also shall please the Lord better than 
an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs" (Psa. 69 :31) . 

Fulfillment: "For if the blood of bulls and of goats, 
and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sancti- 
fieth to the purifying of the flesh : how much more shall 
the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered 
Himself without spot to God, to purge your conscience 
from dead works to serve the living God" (Heb. 9:13, 
14)? 

Note : Animal-sacrifices only purified the flesh in a 
limited way; Christ purifies the soul; He is the spotless 
Offering for sin. 

(10) Those That Sought Christ's Hurt Were to be 
Turned Backward. 

Prophecy: "Let them be ashamed and confounded 
that seek after My soul: let them be turned backward, 



44

and put to confusion, that desire My hurt" (Psa. 70 :2) . 

Fulfillment: "As soon as He had said to them, I am 
He, they went backward, and fell to the ground" (Jno. 
18:6). 

Note: David could not be guessing when he said His 
enemies would go backward; the Bible is surely Inspired; 
we believe God's Word.

LESSON NO. 7 

(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to he Made Judge. 

Prophecy: "He shall judge Thy people with right- 
eousness, and Thy poor with judgment" (Psa. 72:2). 

Fulfillment: "For the Father judgeth no man, but 
hath committed all judgment unto the Son" (Jno. 5:22). 

Note : God has not lived in human flesh as has His 
Son, and would not be as merciful as Jesus Who knows all 
the infirmities of the flesh; God wants His people to have 
all the mercy possible; He wants them to have a "right- 
eous judgment." 

(2) Gifts Were to be Brought to Christ at His Birth. 

Prophecy: "And He shall live (be born), and to Him 
shall be given the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be 
made for Him continually; and daily shall He be praised" 
(Psa. 72:15). 

Fulfillment: "And when they were come into the 
house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, 
and fell down, and worshipped Him : and when they had 
opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; 
gold, and frankincense, and myrrh" (Matt. 2:11). 

Note : Never was any other prophecy more literally 
fulfilled than was this one ; Jesus is God's Gift to the 
World ; He was met with a gift from the world ; we should 
give to Him our all and all. 

(3) Christ Was to Purchase His Church. 

Prophecy: "Remember Thy congregation, which Thou 
hast purchased of old; the rod of Thine inheritance, 



46 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

which Thou hast redeemed ; this Mount Zion, wherein 
Thou hast dwelt" (Psa. 74:2). 

Fulfillment: "Take heed therefore unto yourselves, 
and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Spirit hath 
made you overseers, to feed the Church of God, which He 
hath purchased with His own blood" (Acts 20:28). 

Note : Christ is represented as having been crucified 
from the foundation of the world (Rev. 13:8) ; so He is 
said to have purchased His Church from "of old." 

(4) Christ's Church Was to he in Salem (Jerusalem). 

Prophecy: "In Salem also is His tabernacle, and His 
dwelling place in Zion" (Psa. 76:2). "For out of Zion 
shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from 
Jerusalem" (Isa. 2:3). 

Fulfillment: "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and 
unto the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, 
and to an innumerable company of angels, to the General 
Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, who are written in 
heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of 
just men made perfect, and to Jesus the Mediator of the 
new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speak- 
eth better things than that of Abel" (Heb. 12:22-24). 

Note : The New Testament Church was established at 
Jerusalem (Acts 2:1-47) ; God's new law went out from 
Jerusalem on Pentecost. 

(5) The Teaching of Christ Was to be Called a Law. 

Prophecy: "Give ear, O My people, to My law; in- 
cline your ears to the words of My mouth" (Psa. 78:1). 
"For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of 
the Lord from Jerusalem" (Isa. 2:3). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 47 

Fulfillment: "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so 
fulfill the law of Christ" (Gal. 6:2). 

Note: God gave a law to His Old Testament Church; 
Christ gave the Gospel-law to His New Testament Church; 
we should be law-abiding citizens in His Church-king- 
dom. 

(6) Christ Was to Speak in Parables. 

Prophecy: "I will open My mouth in a parable: I will 
utter dark sayings of old" (Psa. 78:2). 

Fulfillment: "Therefore speak I to them in parables: 
because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, 
neither do they understand" (Matt. 13:13). "All these 
things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and 
without a parable spake he not unto them : that it might 
be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I 
will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things which 
have been kept secret from the foundation of the world" 
(Matt. 13:34, 35). 

Note: David said Christ would speak in parables; He 
did; we accept the Bible as Inspired. 

(7) Christ Was to Speak Peace to His People. 

Prophecy: "He will speak peace unto His people" 
(Psa. 85:8). 

Fulfillment: "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give 
unto you : not as the world giveth, give I unto you" ( Jno. 
14:27). 

Note: Christ does not give the kind of peace that the 
world gives; Christ gives soul-peace, a peace that obtains 
even in war. 



48 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(8) Christ Was to be Holy. 

Prophecy: ''Preserve 'My soul; for I am holy" (Psa. 
86:2). 

Fulfillment: "Saying, Let us alone; what have we to 
do with Thee, Thou Jesus of Nazareth? art Thou come to 
destroy us? I know thee Who Thou art, the Holy One of 
God" (Mark 1 :24) . "But ye denied the Holy One and the 
Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you" 
(Acts 3:14). 

Note : One may find many faults in the lives of saints ; 
they can find none in Christ; see no man — just Jesus only. 

(9) Chrlst ? s Faithfulness Was to he Praised in the 
Church. 

Prophecy: "All the heavens shall praise Thy won- 
ders, O Lord : Thy faithfulness also in the congregation of 
the saints" (Psa. 89:5). 

Fulfillment: "Praising God, and having favor with all 
the people. And the Lord added to the Church daily such 
as should be saved" (Acts 2:47). 

Note. Thousands are praising Him in many lands; 
more and more will praise Him. 

(10) Christ Was to he the Glory of the Strength of 
Christians. 

Prophecy : "For Thou art the Glory of their strength" 
(Psa. 89:17). 

Fulfillment: "For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, 
that it might depart from me. And He said unto me, 
My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made 
perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather 
glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 49 

upon me" (2 Cor. 12:8, 9). "For the Spirit of giory and 
of God resteth upon you" (1 Peter 4:14). 

Note: Christians do not rely upon their own strength; 
they can do all things through Christ Who strengthens 
them (Phil. 4:13). 



50 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 8 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Teach People to Call God 
"Fattier." 

Prophecy: "He shall cry unto Me, Thou art My 
Father, My God, and the Rock of My salvation" (Psa. 
89:26). 

Fulfillment: "After this manner therefore pray ye: 
Our Father Who art in heaven" (Matt. 6:9). 

Note: The Jews addressed God thus: "O Lord God of 
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob;" it was Christ Who taught 
His followers to call God "Father." 

(2) God Was to Make Christ His Firstborn. 

Prophecy : "Also I will make Him My Firstborn, high- 
er than the kings of the earth" (Psa. 89 :27). 

Fulfillment: "Who is the Image of the invisible God, 
the Firstborn of every creature" (Col. 1:15). 

Note: Christ was the Firstborn Spiritually; He was 
also the Firstborn from the grave of those who die no 
more; we should make Him first in our lives. 

(3) Christ Was to be Clothed with Majesty and 
Strength. 

Prophecy: "The Lord reigneth, He is clothed with 
majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith He 
hath girded Himself: the world also is established, that 
it cannot be moved" (Psa. 93 :1) . 

Fulfillment: "Who being the brightness of His glory, 
and the express Image of His Person, and upholding all 
things by the word of His power, when He had by Him- 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 51 

self purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the 
Majesty on high" (Heb. 1:3). 

Note: Christ's Majesty was shown in His being the 
"Brightness of His glory" ; His strength is shown in "His 
upholding all things" ; His purging our sins entitles Him to 
our best living. 

(4) Christ Was to be Praised with Thanksgiving and 
Psalms. 

Prophecy: "O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us 
make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation. Let us 
come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a 
joyful noise unto Him with psalms" (Psa. 95:1, 2). 

Fulfillment: "Speaking to yourselves in psalms and 
hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in 
your heart to the Lord" (Eph. 5:19). 

Note: Millions are praising Him daily just as prophe- 
sied ; none other has ever received the universal praise 
that Christ gets; He merits our best. 

(5) Christ Was to be a King above All Gods. 

Prophecy: "For the Lord is a great God, and a great 
King above all gods" (Psa. 95:3). 

Fulfillment: "And He hath on His vesture and on His 
thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF 
LORDS" (Rev. 19:16). 

Note: Christ is called God many times in the Bible; 
where Christ is received all false gods pass away; He is 
fast taking the world. 

(6) People Were to Bow Down Before Christ, and 
Worship. 

Prophecy : "O come, let us worship and bow down : let 
us kneel before the Lord our Maker" (Psa. 95:6). 



52 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "And he kneeled down, and cried with a 
loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge" (Acts 
7:60). "But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, 
and prayed" (Acts 9:40). "And we kneeled down on the 
shore, and prayed" (Acts 21:5). "For this cause I bow 
my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Eph. 
3:14). 

Note: Thousands have bowed their knees to Christ; 
three worlds, heaven, earth, and hell, will bow to Him 
some day (Phil. 2:9-11). 

(7) Christ's People Were to be Called Sheep. 

Prophecy: "For He is our God; and we are the peo- 
ple of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today if 
ye will hear His voice, harden not your heart, as in the 
provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilder- 
ness" (Psa. 95:7, 8). 

Fulfillment: "I am the good Shepherd, and know My 
sheep, and am known of Mine" (Jno. 10:14). 

Note: Christians are His sheep (Matt. 25:31-46); 
Christian-sheep pasture in the Church-fold; Christ the 
good Shepherd died for His sheep ; His sheep should 
never stray from Him. 

(8) A New Song Was to be Sung to Christ: 

Prophecy: "O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing 
unto the Lord, all the earth" (Psa. 96:1). 

Fulfillment: "And they sung as it were a new song 
before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the 
elders : and no man could learn that song but the hundred 
and forty and four thousand, who were redeemed from 
the earth" (Rev. 14:3). 

Note: David saw that Christ would be praised with a 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 53 

new song; only Christians really know Christian songs; 
others try to sing them, but they do not fully know them; 
Christianity belongs to Christians. 

(9) Christ's Glory and Wonders Were to be Declared 
to All People. 

Prophecy: "Declare His glory among the heathen, 
His wonders among all people" (Psa. 96:3). 

Fulfillment: "And He said unto them, go ye into all the 
world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that 
believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that be- 
lieveth not shall be damned" (Mark. 16 :15, 16) . 

Note: The law of Moses was for Jews only; it was to 
produce a woman fit to be the mother of Jesus; the gospel 
of Christ is for everybody. 

(10) Strength and Beauty Were to be in Christ's 
Church. 

Prophecy: "Honor and majesty are before Him: 
strength and beauty are in His Sanctuary" (Psa. 96:6). 

Fulfillment: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of 
Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every 
one that believeth ; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek" 
(Rom. 1:16). "As it is written, How beautiful are the feet 
of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad 
tidings of good things" (Rom. 10:15). 

Note : Christ's strength is shown in the gospel preach- 
ed ; through it Christ changed the worst of men into the 
best; such a marvelous change is the beauty in His 
Church. 



54 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 9 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

( 1 ) Christ Was to Receive Offerings in His Church. 

Prophecy: "Give unto the Lord the glory due unto 
His name : bring an offering, and come into His courts'' 
(Psa. 96:8). 

Fulfillment: "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by 
the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living 
sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your rea- 
sonable service" (Rom. 12:1). "Upon the first day of the 
week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath 
prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come" 
(1 Cor. 16:2). 

Note : Our bodies first should be given to Christ as 
offerings; weekly we should give of our means as God 
prospers us; each member of the church should be a giver, 
regardless of age. Note the expression: "Let every one of 
you lay by him in store." Not just the head of the family 
— "every one of you", said Paul; it is impossible to be a 
Christian and not to be a liberal giver. 

(2) Christ Was to be Worshipped in Holiness. 

Prophecy: "O worship the Lord in the beauty of 
holiness: fear before Him, all the earth" (Psa. 96:9). 

Fulfillment: "Follow peace with all men, and holi- 
ness, without which no man shall see the Lord" (Heb. 
12:14). 

Note : Christ is holy ; His followers are holy ; every 
one set apart to good works is called holy. 






THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 55 

(3) Christ's Zion-Church Was to be Glad, 

Prophecy: "Zion heard, and was glad" (Psa. 97:8). 

Fulfillment: "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give 
honor to Him : for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and 
His wife hath made herself ready" (Rev. 19:7). 

Note: Christians are the happiest people on earth; 
sinners are never fully happy. 

(4) Christ Was to be Great in His Zion-Church. 
Prophecy : "The Lord is great in Zion ; and He is high 

above all people" (Psa. 99 :2) . 

Fulfillment: "And He hath on His vesture and on 
His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD 
OF LORDS" (Rev. 19:16). 

Note : To Christians, Christ is the greatest One in all 
the universe; God has given Him a name that is above 
every name, making Christ first to saints (Phil. 2:9-11). 

(5) Deceitful Liars Were Not to Live in Christ's 
House. 

Prophecy: "He that worketh deceit shall not dwell 
within My house : he that telleth lies shall not tarry in My 
sight" (Psa. 101:7). 

Fulfillment: "And there shall in no wise enter into it 
anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh 
abomination, or maketh a lie : but they who are written in 
the Lamb's book of life" (Rev. 21:27). 

Note : Bad people may get their names on some church 
books but that does not make them church members ; only 
the regenerated are members of Christ's Church. 

(6) There Were to be Stones in Christ's Zion-Church. 

Prophecy: "Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon 
Zion : for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come. 



56 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

For Thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favor 
the dust thereof" (Psa. 102:13, 14). 

Fulfillment: "To Whom coming, as unto a living 
Stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and 
precious, ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual 
house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, 
acceptable to God by Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 2:4, 5). 

Note : Christ is the great "Corner Stone" ; each Chris- 
tian is a little, but "lively stone" in the Church. 

(7) Christ Was to Regard Prayer. 

Prophecy : "He will regard the prayer of the destitute, 
and not despise their prayer" (Psa. 102:17). 

Fulfillment: "If ye abide in Me, and My words abide 
in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto 
you" (Jno. 15:7). 

Note : Christ wants His followers to ask Him for 
things; He rejoices in answering prayer; we miss much 
when we do not pray; the word "Devil" means "Trying to 
prevent prayer." 

(8) Christ Was to Forgive Sins. 

Prophecy: "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities" (Psa. 
103:3). 

Fulfillment: "Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be for- 
given thee" (Matt. 9:2). "But that ye may know that 
the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then 
said He to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, 
and go unto thine house" (Matt. 9:6). 

Note : Under the Law of Moses there was no one to 
forgive sins ; under Christ we have pardon ; this one thing 
makes Him All and All to us. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 57 

(9) Christ Was to Heal Diseases. 

Prophecy: "Who healeth all thy diseases" (Psa. 
103:3). 

Fulfillment: "And Jesus went about all the cities and 
villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the 
gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and 
every disease among the people" (Matt. 9:35). 

Note: David said He would heal them ALL; Mathew 
said he DID. 

(10) Judas Was to Lose His Office for Betraying 
Christ. 

Prophecy : "Let his days be few ; and let another take 
his office" (Psa. 109:8). 

Fulfillment: "For it is written in the book of Psalms, 
Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell there- 
in : and his bishopric let another take" (Acts 1 :20) . 

Note: This was fulfilled, as the others, literally; read 
all the 109th Psalm and see what Judas and his family 
were to suffer. A wicked man was to be set over him — 
Satan was to stand at his right hand — he was to be con- 
demned in judgment — his prayer was to be sin— his days 
were to be few — he was to lose his office — his children 
were to be fatherless — his wife was to be a widow — his 
children were to become vagabonds, and beg — the extor- 
tioner was to catch all he had — strangers were to spoil his 
labor — no one was to extend him mercy — no one was to 
favor his orphan children — his posterity was to be cut 
off — the name of his posterity was to be blotted out in the 
following generation — the iniquities of his fathers were 
to be remembered by the Lord — his mother's sin was not 
to be blotted out — his bowels were to be cursed. 



58 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 10 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

( 1 ) The Bowels of Judas Were to be Cursed, Because 

He Betrayed Christ. 

Prophecy: "As he clothed himself with cursing like 
as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like 
water, and like oil into his bones" (Psa. 109:18). 

Fulfillment: "For he was numbered with us, and had 
obtained part of his ministry. Now this man purchased a 
field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he 
burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out" 
(Acts 1:17, 18). 

Note : According to the prophet David, the same 
cursing Judas used against Christ was to enter his own 
bowels; we now can understand why his "bowels gushed 
out"' — they were "cursed"; we reap what we sow; God's 
word is Inspired. 

(2) The Days of Judas Were to be Cut Short, Because 

He Betrayed Christ. 

Prophecy: "Let his days be few" (Psa. 109:8). 

Fulfillment: "And he cast down the pieces of silver in 
the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself" 
(Matt. 27:5). 

Note : David was not guessing when he spoke of his 
"days being few" ; the Bible is surely Inspired; it does not 
pay to sin, especially against the innocent; "We surely 
reap what we sow". 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 59 

(3) Christ Was to be a Priest After the Order of 
Melchizedek. 

Prophecy: ''The Lord hath sworn, and will not re- 
pent, Thou art a Priest forever after the order of Melch- 
izedek" (Psa. 110:4). 

Fulfillment: "And it is yet far more evident: for that 
after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another 
Priest, Who is made, not after the law of a carnal com- 
mandment, but after the power of an endless life. For He 
testifieth, Thou art a Priest forever after the order of 
Melchisedec" (Heb. 7:15-17). 

Note : Christ is not a Priest after the order of Aaron ; 
He is after the order of Melchisedec, a Gentile; Paul was 
showing the Jews who worshipped Abraham and Moses, 
thinking they were the greatest men of earth, that neither 
was great enough for Christ to be made after his order, 
but that Pie was made after one greater than either, one 
so great that Abraham paid tithes to him, that there was 
a Gentile greater than any Jew that ever lived. 

(4) Christ Was to Send Redemption to His People. 

Prophecy: "He sent redemption unto His people." 
(Psa. 111:9). 

Fulfillment: "In Whom we have redemption through 
His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches 
of His grace" (Eph. 1:7). 

Note: Under the law there was no redemption from 
sin ; only in Christ may one enjoy that kind of redemption. 

(5) Christ Was to Suffer Hell. 

Prophecy: "The sorrows of death compassed Me, 
and the pains of hell got hold upon Me: I found trouble 



60 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

and sorrow" (Psa. 116:3). "Thou hast delivered My soul 
from the lowest hell" (Psa. 86:13). 

Fulfillment: "He seeing this before spoke of the resur- 
rection of Christ, that His soul was not left in hell, neither 
His flesh did see corruption" (Acts 2:31). 

Note : There are different hells mentioned in the 
Bible ; on the cross Christ suffered all there is to hell ; He 
suffered all there is in the lowest hell ; the hell He suffered 
on the cross brought Him into the death state, another hell 
condition, from which He arose in great triumph. 

(6) The Door of Christ's Church Was to be Called 

"The Gate of the Lord." 

i 

Prophecy: "This gate of the Lord, into which the 
righteous shall enter" (Psa. 118:20). 

Fulfillment: "I am the Door: by Me if any man shall 
enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and 
find pasture" (Jno. 10:9). 

Note : It is wonderful how David called it "The Gate 
of the Lord", and then Jesus said: "I am the Door"; it 
means the Bible is most surely Inspired. 

(7) Christ, the Stone Refused by the Builders, Was to 
Become the Head of the Corner. 

Prophecy: "The Stone Which the builders refused is 
become the Head of the corner" (Psa. 118:22). 

Fulfillment: "Jesus said unto them, Did ye never read 
in the Scriptures, The Stone Which the builders rejected, 
the same is become the Head of the corner: this is the 
Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes" (Matt. 
21:42)? "And are built upon the foundation of the 
apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the 
chief Corner Stone" (Eph. 2:20). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 61 

Note : A thousand years before David said The Re- 
jected Stone would become the Head of the corner; Paul 
said This Christ-Stone had become the "Chief Corner 
Stone"; yes, the Bible is Inspired. 

(8) People Were to Say of Christ, "Blessed is He that 
Cometh in the Name of the Lord." 

Prophecy: "Blessed be He that cometh in the name 
of the Lord" (Psa. 118:26). 

Fulfillment: "And the multitudes that went before, 
and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of 
David : Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord ; 
Hosanna in the highest" (Matt. 21 :9). 

Note: Each of these prophecies is literally fulfilled; 
we cannot deny the Inspiration of the Bible. 

(9) Christ Was to be Light from God to Us. 

Prophecy: "God is the Lord, Who hath shown us 
Light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns 
of the altar" (Psa. (118:27). - 

Fulfillment: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal 
priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye 
should show forth the praises of Him Who hath called 
you out of darkness into His marvelous light" (1 Peter 
2:9). 

Note : Christ repeatedly said He is the Light of the 
world ; only Christians walk in that Light. 

(10) Those Trusting in Christ Cannot Be Moved. 

Prophecy: "They that trust in the Lord shall be as 
Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abideth forever" 
(Psa. 125:1). 

Fulfillment: "And I say also unto thee, That thou art

Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church; and the 
gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). 
"And I give them eternal life ; and they shall never perish, 
neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand" (Jno. 
10:28). 

Note: People truly born of God are well-nigh fix- 
tures in His kingdom; it will take more than eight devils 
to move one of them; we thank God for the care He gives 
each individual Christian; He holds him fast.

(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ's Church Was to be the "Ark of Strength". 

Prophecy: "Arise, O Lord, into Thy rest; Thou, and 
the ark of Thy strength" (Psa. 132:8). 

Fulfillment: ''And I say also unto thee, That thou art 
Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My Church; and 
the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 
16:18). 

Note: Since the "gates of hell" shall not prevail 
against the Church, we know it has all the strength men- 
tioned by the prophet; "Ark of Strength" is a beautiful 
name for the Church; as Noah's ark withstood all the ter- 
rors of the flood, so the Church stands firmly against all 
the wiles of the Devil. 

(2) Christ Was to Descend from David. 

Prophecy : "The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David ; 
He will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set 
upon thy throne" (Psa. 132:11). 

Fulfillment: "He shall be great, and shall be called the 
Son of the highest: and the Lord God shall give unto Him 
the throne of His father David. And He shall reign over 
the house of Jacob forever; and of His kingdom there 
shall be no end" (Luke 1:32, 33). 

Note : God swore that Christ would come from David, 
according to the flesh; He so came; David's kingdom is 
perpetuated in the New Testament Church, of which it 
was a picture. 



64 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(3) Christ Was to Dwell in His Church-Zion. 

Prophecy: 'Tor the Lord hath chosen Zion; He hath 
desired it for His habitation. There is My rest forever: 
here will I dwell ; for I have desired it" (Psa. 132 :13, 14) . 

Fulfillment: "And, lo, I am with you alway, even 
unto the end of the world" (Matt. 28:20). "But ye are 
come unto Mount Sion, unto the City of the living God, 
the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company 
of angels, to the General Assembly and Church of the 
First-born, who are written in heaven, and to God the 
Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 
and to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to 
the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than 
that of Abel" (Heb. 12:22-24). 

Note : David said Christ would dwell in and rest in 
His Zion ; Paul says He is in the Church-Zion ; the Bible is 
Inspired ; in the Church we have the best company in the 
universe — God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, angels, spirits of 
just men made perfect — hypocrites may have their names 
on church books, but they are not members of the Church. 

(4) Christ Was to Bless Abundantly His Church, and 
Feed Her Members. 

Prophecy: "I will abundantly bless Her provision: I 
will satisfy Her poor with bread" (Psa. 132:15). 

Fulfillment: "Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, 
verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son 
of man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you. Who 
so eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath eternal 
life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For My 
flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He 
that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth 



r] 

THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 65 



in Me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent Me, 
and I live by the Father: so he that eateth Me, even he 
shall live by Me. This is that Bread Which came down 
from heaven : not as your fathers did eat manna, and are 
dead : he that eateth of this Bread shall live forever" 
(Jno. 6:53-58). 

Note : We can feed the body on corn ; we feed the soul 
on the bread of heaven; we eat this heavenly Bread at 
the Lord's Supper; those failing to commune regularly 
starve their souls; they are "sick and weakly." 

(5) Christ's Enemies Were to be Clothed with Shame. 

Prophecy: "His enemies will I clothe with shame" 
(Psa. 132:18). 

Fulfillment: "Then Judas, who had betrayed Him, 
when he saw that He was condemned, repented himself, 
and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief 
priests and elders, saying, I have sinned in that I have 
betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that 
to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of 
silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged 
himself" (Matt. 27:3-5). "Now when the centurion, and 
they that were with Him, watching Jesus, saw the earth- 
quake, and those things that were done, they feared 
greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God" (Matt. 
27:54). 

Note : No greater shame could come to one of Christ's 
enemies than that which came to Judas; those that cruci- 
fied Him were nearly frightened to death — "they feared 
greatly" ; however, greater fear yet awaits the enemies 
of Jesus Christ. 



66 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(6) Christ's Crown Was to Flourish, Grow or Multi- 
ply. 

Prophecy: His enemies will I clothe with shame: but 
upon Himself shall His crown flourish" (Psa. 132:18). 

Fulfillment: "His eyes were as a flame of fire, and 
on His head were many crowns" (Rev. 19:12). "The 
kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our 
Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and 
ever" (Rev. 11:15). 

Note: Christ's crown has and does flourish; He al- 
ready has many crowns; they will continue to multiply — 
"flourish" — till all kings lay their crowns at His feet. 

(7) Christ Was to be Killed by His Enemies. 

Prophecy: "For the enemy hath persecuted My soul; 
he hath smitten My life down to the ground; he hath 
made Me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been 
long dead" (Psa. 143:3). 

Fulfillment: "Ye men of Israel, hear these words; 
Jesus of Nazareth, a Man approved of God among you by 
miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him in 
the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being 
delivered by the determinate counsel and fore-knowledge 
of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have cruci- 
fied and slain" (Acts 2 :22, 23) . 

Note: Yes, His enemies killed Him, as the prophet 
said they would ; they did not know they were crucifying 
God's Son; He has many enemies now crucifying Him 
afresh (Heb. 6:4-6). 

(8) Christ Was to be Blessed by His Saints. 

Prophecy: "All Thy works shall praise Thee, O Lord; 
and Thy saints shall bless Thee" (Psa. 145:10). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 67 

Fulfillment: "The God and Father of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, Who is blessed forevermore, knoweth that I lie 
not" (2 Cor. 11:31). 

Note: Christians are daily blessing His holy name; 
Christian living is the greatest blessing that we may bring 
to Christ. 

(9) Christ Was to Open Blind Eyes. 

Prophecy: "The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind" 
(Psa. 146:8). "Then the eyes of the blind shall be open- 
ed" (Isa. 35:5). 

Fulfillment: "And He touched their eyes, saying, Ac- 
cording to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were 
opened" (Matt. 9:29, 30). "They say unto Him, Lord, 
that our eyes may be opened. So Jesus had compassion on 
them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes 
received sight, and they followed Him" (Matt. 20 :33, 34) . 

Note: David said He would open blind eyes; He 
opened them; the Bible is Inspired; He not only opened 
blind physical eyes, but He is opening eyes spiritually. 

(10) Christ Was to Preserve Strangers. 

Prophecy: "The Lord preserveth the strangers" (Psa. 
146:9). 

Fulfillment: "Be not fearful to entertain strangers: 
for thereby some have entertained angels unawares" 
(Heb. 13:2). 

Note : One of the many commands given by Christ is 
this one — Look after strangers; He is seeing they are 
"preserved", looked after; every family should maintain 
a comfortable room for strangers.

(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ, Called Wisdom Here, Was to Build His 
Great Church-House Upon Seven Pillars. 

Prophecy: ''Wisdom hath builded Her House, She 
hath hewn out Her seven Pillars" (Prov. 9:1). 

Fulfillment: "There is one body, and one Spirit, even 
as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, 
one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, Who is 
above all, and through all, and in you all" (Eph. 4:4-6). 

Note : The seven Pillars on which Christ-Wisdom built 
His house, as found in the foregoing Scripture, follow: 
one Body — one Spirit — one hope — one Lord — one faith — 
one baptism — one God. Upon these seven great UNITIES 
Christ built His Church, and all hell cannot overcome it. 

(2) Christ Called Wisdom Here, Was to Spread His 

Table with Bread and Wine. 

Prophecy: "Wisdom hath builded Her house, She hath 
hewn out Her seven pillars: She hath killed Her beasts; 
She hath mingled Her wine; She hath also furnished Her 
table. She hath sent forth Her maidens: She crieth upon 
the highest places of the city, Whoso is simple, let him 
turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, She 
saith to him, Come, eat of My bread, and drink of the 
wine which I have mingled. Forsake the foolish, and live; 
and go in the way of understanding" (Prov. 9:1-6). 

Fulfillment: "And as they were eating, Jesus took 
bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the dis- 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 69 

ciples, and said, Take, eat; this is My body. And He took 
the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, 
Drink ye all of it; for this is My blood of the New Testa- 
ment, which is shed for many for the remission of sins" 
(Matt. 26:26-28). 

Note: Wisdom was to build a house — the Church; it 
was to be built upon seven pillars; something was to die 
— beasts were killed; wine was to be "mingled," mixed 
with faith and love; a table was to be furnished; servants 
were to be sent out to invite people into Wisdom's House 
and to His table ; they were invited to eat bread and drink 
wine from Wisdom's table in His house; they were to be 
urged to forsake foolish living, and really LIVE; all of 
these things we find in the Church of Jesus Christ; surely 
the Bible is Inspired. 

(3) Christ's Church Was to be the Fairest Among 
Women. 

Prophecy: "If thou know not, O fairest among wom- 
en" (Songs 1:8). 

Fulfillment: "That He might present it to Himself a 
glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such 
thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish" 
(Eph. 5:27). "And there appeared a great wonder in 
heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon 
under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve 
stars" (Rev. 12:1). 

Note: The Song of Solomon is a prophetic dialogue 
between Christ and His Church-bride; He in this book is 
represented as the "Rose of Sharon" and the "Lily of the 
valleys" (Songs 2:1) ; to Christ the Church is the fairest 
of all women; She is without spot or wrinkle. 



70 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(4) Christ Was to be Like a Great Tree with Sweet 
Fruits. 

Prophecy: "As the apple tree among the trees of the 
wood, so is my Beloved among the sons. I sat down 
under His shadow with great delight, and His fruit was 
sweet to my taste" (Songs 2:3). 

Fulfillment: "And he showed me a pure river of 
water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne 
of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, 
and on either side of the river, was there the Tree of Life, 
Which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her 
fruit every month : and the leaves of the tree were for the 
healing of the nations" (Rev. 22:1, 2). 

Note: Christ is the Ever-bearing Tree of Life, Whose 
leaves heal the nations; His Church-kingdom is also com- 
pared to a tree (Matt. 13:31, 32) ; The Church which is 
compared to the great tree is the very "fullness of Christ" 
(Eph. 1 :22, 23) ; it is worth all the worlds to be the small- 
est limb on the Church-Tree. 

(5) The Banner Christ Was to Put Over His People Is 
Love. 

Prophecy: "He brought me to the Banqueting House, 
and His banner over me was love" (Songs 2:4). 

Fulfillment: "As the Father hath loved Me, so have I 
loved you: continue ye in my love" (Jno. 15:9). 

Note : Christ is the only Ruler that loves His own so 
much ; all Christians function under His "Lover-Banner" ; 
He does not drive; He draws people by love (Hosea 
11:4). 

(6) Christ and His Church Were to Belong to Each 
Other. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 71 

Prophecy: "My Beloved is mine, and I am His" (Songs 
2:16). 

Fulfillment: "Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are 
become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye 
should be married to Another, even to Him Who is raised 
from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto 
God" (Rom. 7:4). 

Note : Christ and His Church-Bride belong to each 
other just as the husband and wife belong to each other 
— a beautiful relationship ; this relationship should inspire 
us to be our best for Christ. 

(7) Christ's Church Was to be a Sealed Fountain. 

Prophecy: "A garden enclosed is My sister, My 
spouse ; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed" (Songs 4 :12) . 

Fulfillment: "But whosoever drinketh of the water 
that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that 
I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing 
up into everlasting life" (Jno. 4:14). "He that believeth 
on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall 
flow rivers of living water" (Jno. 7:38). "Who hath also 
sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts" 
(2 Cor. 1:22). 

Note : The Holy Spirit is the "sealed Fountain" in the 
Church, and in the heart of each Christian (Jno. 7 :38, 
39) ; He is Living Water to the soul ; "Ye were sealed with 
the Holy Spirit of promise" (Eph. 1:13). 

(8) Christ Was to Eat Pleasant Fruits in His Church- 
Garden. 

Prophecy: "Awake, O north wind; and come, thou 
south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may 



72 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

flow out. Let my Beloved come into His Garden, and eat 
His pleasant fruits" (Songs 4:16). 

Fulfillment: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: 
if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come 
in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me" (Rev. 
3:20). 

Note : Christ was knocking at the door of the Laodi- 
cean church, asking to enter and sup with them as a 
church, or as individuals (Rev. 3:14-20) ; this shows that 
Christ eats with His people in His great Church-Garden; 
how long since you had Christ to dine with you? 

i (9) Christ Was to Invite His Friends to Eat With Him 
in His Church-Garden. 

Prophecy: "I am come into My garden, My sister, 
My spouse: I have gathered My myrrh with My spice; I 
have eaten My honeycomb with My honey; I have drunk 
My wine with My milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink 
abundantly, O beloved" (Songs 5:1). 

Fulfillment: "And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. 
And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that 
is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the 
water of life freely" (Rev. 22 :17) . 

Note : Christ gives His people, his "friends", the great- 
est welcome to the good things in His Church-Garden that 
has ever been given; all Christians should feast with Him 
daily. 

(10) There Was to be a Time When Christ's Church 

Would Sleep While He Pled for Admission. 

Prophecy: "I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the 
voice of my Beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to Me, 
My sister, My love, My dove, My undefiled : for My head 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 73 

is filled with dew, and My locks with the drops of the 
night. I have put off My coat; how shall I put it on? I 
have washed My feet; how shall I defile them? My Be- 
loved put in His hand by the hole of the door, and my 
bowels were moved for Him. I rose up to open to my 
Beloved; and My hands dropped with myrrh, and my 
fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of 
the lock. I opened to my Beloved; but my Beloved had 
withdrawn Himself, and was gone : my soul failed when 
He spake : I sought Him, but I could not find Him ; I called 
Him, but He gave me no answer. The watchmen that 
went about the city found me, they smote me, they wound- 
ed me; the keepers of the walls took away my vail from 
me. I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my 
Beloved, that ye tell Him, that I am sick of love" (Songs 
5:2-8). 

Fulfillment: "And unto the angel of the Church of the 
Laodiceans write : These things saith the Amen, the faith- 
ful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of 
God ; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot : 
I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art 
lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of 
My mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased 
with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not 
that thou are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and 
blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried 
in the fire, that thou mayest be rich ; and white raiment, 
that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy 
nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with 
eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I re- 
buke and chasten : be zealous therefore, and repent. Be- 
hold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My 



74 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will 
sup with him, and he with Me" (Rev. 3:14-20). 

Note : In the prophecy the Church was represented as 
saying. She was sleeping, but her heart was awake; many 
say now: "We just cannot attend Church, but our hearts 
are right" ; Christ pled for admission on seven grounds, 
That she is His sister, they have the same Father, God, 
but different mothers — that she is His love — that she is 
His dove, a pet name — that she is His undefiled — that His 
head was wet with the dampness of the night — that He 
had removed His coat and washed His feet — that He tried 
to waken her by rattling the handle of the lock on the 
inside ; she rose to open to Him, but myrrh from the 
handle of the lock was so sweet she forgot Him till the 
myrrh was gone; she finally opened, but He was gone; 
her soul failed when He spake; her heart was not right; 
she sought Him, but could not find Him; she called, but 
He gave her no answer; she was very sick after that; we 
are living in the Laodicean age of the Church; she is 
sleeping, being doped by riches, not the true riches; she 
is neither cold nor hot; Jesus is on the outside, crowded 
out by worldliness in the Church; let us hope that the 
Church does not sleep till Jesus walks away never to re- 
turn.

(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

( 1 ) Christ Was to Save a Very Small Remnant of the 
Jews. 

Prophecy: "Except the Lord of hosts had left us a 
very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and 
we should have been like unto Gomorrah" (Isa. 1:9). 

Fulfillment: "And as Isaiah said before, Except the 
Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodom, 
and been made like unto Gomorrah" (Rom. 9:29). 

Note : Paul bore testimony to the fact that Isaiah's 
prophecy had been fulfilled literally in his day; God 
always saves a remnant; only a few of the many will 
enter eternal life (Matt. 7:13, 14). 

(2) Christ Was to Provide Means by Which Scarlet 
Sins Could be Made White. 

Prophecy: "Come now, and let us reason together, 
saith the Lord : though your sins be as scarlet, they shall 
be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they 
shall be as wool" (Isa. 1 :18) . 

Fulfillment: "These are they that came out of great 
tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them 
white in the blood of the Lamb" (Rev. 7:14). 

Note : Such pardon was never offered in Old Testa- 
ment times; it came to us through Christ; a blood-washing 
is all sufficient to make scarlet sins as white as snow. 

(3) Christ Was to Make Wicked Jerusalem to Become 
"The City of Righteousness." 

Prophecy: "And I will turn My hand upon thee 



76 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(Jerusalem), and purely purge away thy dross, and take 
away all thy tin: and I will restore thy judges as at the 
first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward 
thou shalt be called, The City of Righteousness, the faith- 
ful city. Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her 
converts with righteousness" (Isa. 1:25-27). 

Fulfillment: "Thus it is written, and thus it behoved 
Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 
and that repentance and remission of sins should be 
preached in His name among all nations, beginning at 
Jerusalem" (Luke 24:46, 47). 

Note. The New Testament Church began at Jerusa- 
lem on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-47); it was in 
Jerusalem that the gospel of the crucified, buried, and 
risen Lord was preached first; it was at Jerusalem that 
general remission of sins was preached to those who 
would obey the gospel ; all of these things fulfilled Isaiah's 
prophecy that Jerusalem would become "The City of 
Righteousness." 

(4) Christ's Mountain- Church Was to be Established 
in the Top of a Mountain. 

Prophecy: "And it shall come to pass in the last days, 
that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established 
in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above 
the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many 
people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the 
Mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob ; 
and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His 
paths : for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word 
of the Lord from Jerusalem" (Isa. 2:2, 3). 

Fulfillment: "But ye are come unto mount Sion (here 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 77 

is the Mountain mentioned by Isaiah), and unto the city 
of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an in- 
numerable company of angels, to the General Assembly 
and Church of the Firstborn" (Heb. 12:22, 23). 

Note: "Mount Sion", a Spiritual Mountain, is here 
called the Church of the Firstborn; it was to start in 
Jerusalem, and if did; the Church is a high Institution; 
one has to rise from the beggarly elements to reach the 
Church ; it is a mountain on a mountain. 

(5) People Were to Be Invited to Walk in the Light 

of Christ. 

Prophecy: "O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us 
walk in the light of the Lord" (Isa. 2 :5) . 

Fulfillment: "For ye were sometime darkness, but 
now are ye light in the Lord : walk as children of light" 
(Eph. 5:8). 

Note : Christ is the Light of the world ; Christians are 
also the light of the world ; we should walk as children of 
light. 

(6) In the Day of Christ's Wrath the Wicked Were to 
Hide Among Rocks. 

Prophecy: "In that day a man shall cast his idols of 
silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for 
himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; to go 
into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged 
rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His 
majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth" 
(Isa. 2:20, 21). 

Fulfillment: "And the kings of the earth, and the 
great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and 
the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, 



78 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the moun- 
tains; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, 
and hide us from the face of Him That sitteth on the 
throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb : for the great 
day of His wrath is come ; and who shall be able to stand" 
(Rev. 6:15-17). 

Note: This all took place under the opening of the 
sixth seal; it is not the judgment day, as many think; we 
are living in the third epoch of the seventh Seal ; those ter- 
rible commotions took place in the reformation days when 
sinners were being dealt death-blows; a part is yet to 
come when God avenges the blood of martyrs, which is in 
part going on now. 

(7) Christ Was to Give to Humanity the Great "Tab- 
ernacle-Church" for Protection. 

Prophecy: "And there shall be a tabernacle for a 
shadow in the daytime from heat, and for a place of 
refuge, and for a covert from storm and rain" (Isa. 4:6). 

Fulfillment: "I am the Door: by Me if any man enter 
in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find 
pasture" (Jno. 10:9). 

Note: Christ was speaking of the Church-fold, the 
tabernacle of prophecy; in this fold His people are saved 
from sin-heat, sin-storm, and the rain of troubles; no one 
is safe on the outside of the Church-fold. 

(8) Christ's Birth Was to be a Miracle. 

Prophecy: "Therefore the Lord Himself shall give 
you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a 
Son, and shall call His name Immanuel" (Isa. 7:14). 
"Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm 
of the Lord revealed? For He shall grow up before Him 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 79 

as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground" 
(Isa. 53:1, 2). 

Fulfillment: "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on 
this wise : When as His mother Mary was espoused to 
Joseph, before they came together, she was found with 
Child of the Holy Spirit" (Matt. 1:18). "Now all this was 
done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the 
Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be 
with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall 
call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God 
with us" (Matt. 1:22, 23). 

Note : It was a miracle for a virgin, an unmarried 
woman, to bear a Son ; if she had committed fornication to 
bring forth a son, she would not be a "virgin" ; Christ was 
to be as a "root out of dry ground", another miracle, as 
roots do not grow without moisture ; this miraculous birth 
of Christ was to be a "SIGN"; we should accept the 
"SIGN" with the faith of a child, and follow Christ all 
the way home and to God. 

(9) Both Judah and Israel Were to be Kingless Before 
the Coming of Christ. 

Prophecy: "For before the Child shall know to refuse 
the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest 
shall be forsaken of both her kings" (Isa. 7 :16) . 

Fulfillment: "In the ninth year of Hoshea the king 
of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into 
Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the 
river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes" (2 Kings 
17:6). "Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, 
and removed them out of His sight: there was none left 
but the tribe of Judah only" (2 Kings 17:18). "And he 



80 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon, and the king's 
mother, and the king's wives, and his officers, and the 
mighty of the land, those carried he into captivity from 
Jerusalem to Babylon" (2 Kings 24:15). 

Note : Thus we have it that Israel, which consisted of 
the ten tribes, went into Assyrian captivity, and then the 
kingdom of Judah, made up of Judah and Benjamin, went 
into Babylonian captivity one hundred and thirty years 
later. From that day forth Israel nor Judah had any 
kings till the birth of Christ, and they had the opportunity 
to make Him their spiritual King; during the time from 
the captivities mentioned till Christ was born "Governors" 
ruled over the Jews (Neh. 12 :26 ; Zech. 12 :5, 6) . 

(10) Christ's People Were not to Federate with 

Others, But Were to he Separate, and Fear only Him. 

Prophecy: "Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to 
whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear 
ye their fear, nor be afraid" (Isa. 8:12). 

Fulfillment: "Be ye not unequally yoked together 
with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness 
with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light 
with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Be- 
lial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 
and what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 
for ye are the temple of the living God ; as God hath said, 
I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be 
their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come 
out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, 
and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 
and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 81 

and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty" (2 Cor. 6: 
14-18). 

Note: God's people have always suffered when they 
"Federated" with other people; such sent the Jews into 
bondage ; the Church is suffering now from associating 
with the wicked ; God wants a clean house. 



82 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 14 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ's People Were to Sanctify Him, and Let 
Him Be Their Fear and Dread. 

Prophecy: "Sanctify the Lord of hosts Himself; and 
let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread" (Isa. 
8:13). 

Fulfillment: "Fear not them who kill the body, but 
are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him Who 
is able to destroy both soul and body in hell" (Matt. 
10:28). "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts" (1 
Peter 3:15). 

Note : We sanctify Christ when we set Him apart as 
the Object of our worship, and when we obey His com- 
mands; Christ sanctifies us when He sets us apart as the 
objects of His love; therefore, the whole Christ-family is 
sanctified. 

(2) Christ Was to be a Stone of Stumbling to Some. 

Prophecy: "And He shall be for a Sanctuary; but 
for a Stone of stumbling and for a Rock of offence to 
both the houses of Israel, for a Gin and for a Snare to the 
inhabitants of Jerusalem" (Isa. 8:14). 

Fulfillment: "Unto you therefore who believe He is 
precious: but unto them who be disobedient, the Stone 
Which the builders disallowed, the same is made the 
Head of the corner, and a Stone of stumbling, and a Rock 
of offence, even to them who stumble at the word, being 
disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed" (1 
Peter 2:7, 8). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 83 

Note: Many from disbelief and disobedience have 
stumbled over Christ, and fallen to their everlasting un- 
doing; we stumble over and by many temptations, and 
fall; it is worse when we stumble over Christ, our best 
Friend, and never rise again. 

(3) Christ's Followers at First Were to be Called 
Disciples. 

Prophecy: "Bind up the testimony, seal the law among 
My disciples" (Isa. 8:16). 

Fulfillment: "And when he had found him, be 
brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a 
whole year they assembled themselves with the church, 
and taught much people. And the disciples were called 
Christians first in Antioch" (Acts 11:26). 

Note: Disciple means a learner or a follower; after 
both Jews and Gentiles were allowed to hear the gospel, 
and accept Christ, they were made into a oneness under 
the name "Christian", which means belonging to Christ; 
Christian is not the name of the New Testament Church — 
it is the name of the members of the Church; the New 
Testament Church is called "THE CHURCH", and is then 
called by ninety-nine other names, which explain what 
"THE CHURCH" means; the universal name for members 
of "THE CHURCH" is Christian, and then in the New 
Testament are found one hundred and fifty-five other 
names of church members, explaining fully what it means 
to be "CHRISTIANS." 

(4) Christ, and His Followers Were to Perform Mira- 
cles Awhile. 

Prophecy: "Behold, I and the children whom the 
Lord hath given Me are for signs and wonders in Israel 



84 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

from the Lord of hosts, Who dwelleth in mount Zion" 
(Isa. 8:18). 

Fulfillment: "Ye men of Israel, hear these words; 
Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by 
miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him 
in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know" (Acts 
2:22). "Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought 
among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and 
mighty deeds" (2 Cor. 12:12). 

Note : God's people, including Christ, were to show 
marvelous things as long a time as Israel was getting out 
of Egypt and into the promised land (Micah 7 :15) ; Isaiah 
said they would perform miracles, and they did; the Bible 
is Inspired. 

(5) God Was to Give to Christ His First Followers, 

the Apostles. 

Prophecy: "Behold, I and the children whom the 
Lord hath given Me are for signs and wonders in Israel 
from the Lord of hosts, Who dwelleth in mount Zion" 
(Isa. 8:18). 

Fulfillment: "My Father, Who gave them Me, is 
greater than all ; and no man is able to pluck them out of 
My Father's hand" (Jno. 10:29). "I have manifested 
Thy name unto the men whom Thou gavest me out of the 
world : Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me ; and 
they have kept Thy word" (Jno. 17:6). "While I was 
with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name : those 
that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is 
lost, but the son of perdition ; that the Scripture might be 
fulfilled" (Jno. 17:12). "And again, I will put My trust 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 85 

in Him. And again, Behold I and the children whom God 
hath given Me" (Heb. 2:13). 

Note : Even before the foundation of the world cer- 
tain men were ordained to be apostles, were given to 
Christ for that purpose, but were not ordained to eternal 
life (Eph. 1:1-12) ; Christ had a purpose to accomplish, 
and the right men were given Him of the Father to ac- 
complish that purpose. 

(6) Christ as a Light Was to Drive Away Death- 
shadows. 

Prophecy: "The people that walk in darkness have 
seen a great Light: they that dwell in the land of the 
shadow of death, upon them hath the Light shined" (Isa. 
9:2). 

Fulfillment: "The people who sat in darkness saw a 
great Light; and to them who sat in the region and 
shadow of death Light is sprung up" (Matt. 4:16). 

Note : Christ turns death-shadows to light everywhere 
He goes; if we love death, we should reject Christ; if our 
deeds are evil, we will reject the Light — Christ. 

(7) Christ as a Rod and Branch Was to Come Out of 
Jesse. 

Prophecy: "And there shall come forth a Rod out of 
the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his 
roots" (Isa. 11 :1). 

Fulfillment: "And when He had removed him, He 
raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also 
He gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son 
of Jesse, a man after Mine own heart, who shall fulfill all 
My will. Of this man's seed hath God according to His 



86 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus" (Acts 13: 
22, 23). 

Note : David was the son of Jesse ; Jesus, therefore 
came, according to the flesh, both from David and Jesse; 
Isaiah was right; the Bible is Inspired. 

(8) Christ Was to be an "Ensign" that Would be 
Sought by the Gentiles. 

Prophecy: "And in that day there shall be a Root of 
Jesse, That shall stand for an Ensign of the people; to It 
shall the Gentiles seek: and His rest shall be glorious" 
(Isa. 11:10). 

Fulfillment: "And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gen- 
tiles, with His people. And again, Praise the Lord, all ye 
Gentiles; and laud Him, all ye people. And again, Isaiah 
saith, There shall be a Root of Jesse, and He that shall 
rise to reign over the Gentiles ; in Him shall the Gentiles 
trust" (Rom. 15:10-12). 

Note: Only inspiration from God helped a Jewish 
prophet, as Isaiah was, to see that Christ would accept 
Gentile followers, and reign over them, be their "Ensign" ; 
the Bible is from God. 

(9) Christ Was to Furnish Wells of Salvation. 

Prophecy: "Therefore with joy shall ye draw water 
out of the wells of salvation" (Isa. 12:3). 

Fulfillment: "If thou knewest the Gift of God, and 
Who It is That saith to thee, Give Me to drink; thou 
wouldst have asked of Him, and He would have given thee 
living water" (Jno. 4:10). "He that believeth on Me, as 
the Scripture hath said, Out of his belly shall flow rivers 
of living water. (But this spake He of the Spirit, Whom 
they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 87 

Spirit was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet 
glorified.)" (Jno. 7 :38, 39). 

Note : Here we learn that Christ is one of the Wells 
of Salvation; The Holy Spirit is another Well of Salva- 
tion; there are other Wells of Salvation, such as God and 
the Bible. 

(10) Christ Was to be Poor, the "Firstborn of the 
Poor." 

Prophecy: "The Firstborn of the poor shall feed, and 
the needy shall lie down in safety" (Isa. 14 :30) . 

Fulfillment: "Jesus said unto him, The foxes have 
holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of 
man hath not where to lay His head" (Matt. 8 :20) . "For 
ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though 
He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye 
through His poverty might be rich" (2 Cor. 8:9). 

Note : In some places the standard of a real man is 
his wealth; according to that standard Jesus would be 
found wanting; Jesus was poor; He makes many rich. 



88 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS

(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Come as a Lamb to Zion. 

Prophecy : "Send ye the Lamb to the ruler of the land 
from Sela to the wilderness, unto the mount of the daugh- 
ter of Zion" (Isa. 16:1). 

Fulfillment: "The next day John seeth Jesus coming 
unto Him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, Who tak- 
eth away the sin of the world" ( Jno. 1 :29) . "And all that 
dwell upon the earth shall worship Him, whose names are 
not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the 
foundation of the world" (Rev. 13:8). 

Note : Christ is the slain Lamb ; Isaiah saw Him as a 
Lamb in the Church; He came as such; the Bible is from 
heaven. 

(2) Christ Was to Have the Key to the House of 
David. 

Prophecy: "And the key of the house of David will I 
lay upon His shoulder; so He shall open, and none shall 
shut; and He shall shut, and none shall open" (Isa. 22: 
22). 

Fulfillment: "And to the angel of the Church in Phil- 
adelphia write: These things saith He That is holy, He 
That is true, He That hath the key of David, He That 
openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man 
openeth" (Rev. 3:7). 

Note : Isaiah saw that Christ would have the key to 
the house of David; John saw that it had come to pass; 
who can deny the Inspiration of the Bible? 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 89 

(3) Christ ¥/as to Destroy the Vail That Covered the 
Truth, that Spread over the Nations. 

Prophecy: "And He will destroy in this mountain the 
face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that 
is spread over all nations" (Isa. 25:7). 

Fulfillment: "But even unto this day, when Moses is 
read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it 
shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away" (2 
Cor. 3:15, 16). 

Note : It is by the aid of the New Testament that we 
can understand the Old Testament; faith in Christ re- 
moves the vail just as Isaiah said it would; think what a 
wonderful Book the Bible is. 

(4) Christ Was to Swallow up Death in Victory. 

Prophecy: "He will swallow up death in victory" 
(Isa. 25:8). 

Fulfillment: "Death is swallowed up in victory. O 
death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the 
law. But thanks be to God, Who giveth us the victory 
through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 15:54-57). 

Note : "And delivered them who through fear of 
death were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Heb. 
2:15); under the Old Testament people feared death, 
thinking it marked the end of their existence; Jesus 
freed the world of that fear; He has swallowed up death 
in victory, as was prophesied. 

(5) Christ Was to Wipe Away All Tears. 

Prophecy: "And the Lord God will wipe away tears 
from off all faces" (Isa. 25 :8) . 

Fulfillment: "That ye sorrow not, even as others who 



90 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

have no hope" (1 Thes. 4:13). "And God shall wipe 
away all tears from their eyes" (Rev. 21 :4) . 

Note : Christ has already relieved His people of many 
tears, and the time will come when there will be none at 
all ; there is no lasting happiness out of Christ; in Him we 
rejoice (Phil. 4:4). 

(6) Salvation Was to be the Walls and Bulwarks of 
Christ's Church. 

Prophecy : "In that day shall this song be sung in the 
land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God 
appoint for walls and bulwarks" (Isa. 26:1). 

Fulfillment: "And had a wall great and high, and 
had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and 
names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve 
tribes of Israel" (Rev. 21 :12). "And the wall of the city 
had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the 
twelve apostles of the Lamb" (Rev. 21:14). 

Note : With the twelve tribes of Israel that gave Christ 
to the world, and the twelve apostles that preached Christ 
to humanity, connected with the great wall around the 
Church-City, we can see how it represents salvation — is 
salvation — just as the prophet said; with the Salvation- 
wall around us, there is complete safety in Christ. 

( 7 ) There Were to be Gates through which the Right- 
eous Nation Keeping the Truth Might Enter the Church- 
City. 

Prophecy: "Open ye the gates, that the righteous 
nation that keepeth the truth may enter in" (Isa. 26:2). 

Fulfillment: "On the east three gates; on the north 
three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west 
three gates" (Rev. 21 :13). "And the nation of them who 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 91 

are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of 
the earth do bring their glory and honor into it" (Rev. 
21:24). 

Note : The Church-City has gates, as the prophet said ; 
the righteous nation guards the truth; people are entering 
the City as fast as they become saved. 

(8) Christ Was to Keep in Perfect Peace Those 
Trusting Him. 

Prophecy: "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, 
whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in 
Thee" (Isa. 26:3). 

Fulfillment: "And the peace of God, Which passeth 
understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through 
Christ Jesus" (Phil. 4:7). 

Note : Our destiny is not entirely in our own hands ; we 
would fail, if it were left entirely with us; Christ is keep- 
ing in perfect peace His own. 

(9) Christ Was to Give Everlasting Strength, All Suf- 
ficient Strength. 

Prophecy: "Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the 
Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength" (Isa. 26:4). 

Fulfillment: "I can do all things through Christ Who 
strengtheneth me" (Phil. 4:13). 

Note: Living the Christian life is not the job of one; 
each one without help would fail; Christ gives all needed 
help ; there is no excuse for a failure. 

(10) Under the Judgments of Christ People Were to 
Learn Righteousness. 

Prophecy: "When Thy judgments are in the earth, 
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness" 
(Isa. 26:9). 



92 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "For Christ is the end of the law for 
righteousness to every one that believeth" (Rom. 10:4). 

Note : The law of Moses had carnal commandments 
(Heb. 7:16) ; righteousness did not come by the law of 
Moses (Gal. 2:21); righteousness came through Jesus 
Christ (Rom. 5:21). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 93 

LESSON NO. 16 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) The Jews for Rejecting Christ Were to be Put to 
Sleep. 

Prophecy: 'Tor the Lord hath poured out upon you 
the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes; the 
prophets and your rulers, the seers hath He covered" 
(Isa. 29:10). 

Fulfillment: "According as it is written, God hath 
given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not 
see, and ears that they should not hear" (Rom. 11 :8) . 

Note: We can see this condition of sleeping Jews be- 
fore our own eyes; Paul said it was fulfilled in his day; it 
so remains in our time; the Bible is different from other 
books — it is Inspired. 

(2) The Jews Were to Honor Christ with Their Lips 
When Their Hearts Were Far from Him. 

Prophecy: "Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as 
this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with 
their lips do honor Me, but have removed their heart far 
from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the pre- 
cept of men" (Isa. 29:13). 

Fulfillment: "Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy 
of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto Me with 
their mouth, and honoreth Me with their lips; but their 
heart is far from Me" (Matt. 15 :7, 8) . 

Note : False hearts lay back of flattering lips in the 
time of Christ; He is treated the same way yet; insincerity 



94 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

is so general; we should give Him Heart-praise and 
service. 

(3) Christ Was to Destroy the Wisdom of the Wise. 

Prophecy: "For the wisdom of their wise men shall 
perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall 
be hid" (Isa. 29:14). 

Fulfillment : "For the preaching of the cross is to them 
that perish foolishness; but unto us who are saved it is 
the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wis- 
d)om of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understand- 
ing of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the 
scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God 
made foolish the wisdom of this world" (1 Cor. 1 :18-20) ? 

Note: Notwithstanding the world thought she was 
so wise before the coming of Christ, the world by her own 
wisdom knew not God (1 Cor. 1:21) ; the foolishness of 
God is wiser than men (1 Cor. 1:25) ; God did not call 
many wise men after the flesh (1 Cor. 1:26) ; God con- 
founds the worldly wise by foolish things (1 Cor. 1:27) ; 
the world-princes knew not the wisdom of God (1 Cor. 
2:7, 8) ; we must become fools in order to have the true 
wisdom (1 Cor. 3 :18) ; the wisdom of the wise is destroy- 
ed, as the prophet said — the Bible is Inspired. 

(4) Christ Was to Make the Deaf to Hear. 

Prophecy: "And in that day shall the deaf hear the 
words of the Book" (Isa. 29:18). 

Fulfillment: "Go and show John again those things 
which ye do hear and see : The blind receive their sight, 
and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf 
hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 95 

preached to them" (Matt. 11 :4, 5) . "And straightway his 
ears were open" (Mark 7:35). 

Note: Isaiah said the deaf would hear; Christ opened 
their ears: what shall we say about the Bible, therefore? 
Is it from God or from man? Heaven is waiting your 
answer. 

(5) The Meek Were to Be Blessed by Christ. 

Prophecy: "The meek also shall increase their joy in 
the Lord" (Isa. 29:19). 

Fulfillment: "Blessed are the meek: for they shall in- 
herit the earth" (Matt. 5:5). 

Note : Moses was the meekest man on earth (Num. 
12 :3) ; Christ blesses the meek; the meek shall inherit the 
earth; it pays to be meek under Christ. 

(6) The Poor Were to Rejoice in Christ. 

Prophecy: "The poor among them shall rejoice in the 
Holy One of Israel" (Isa. 29:19). 

Fulfillment: "The poor have the gospel preached to 
them" (Matt. 11:5). "Hearken, my beloved brethren, 
Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, 
and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them 
that love Him" (Jas. 2:5)? 

Note: Christ is the real Friend to the poor; He 
preached to them; they are, generally, rich in faith, and 
such are "heirs of the kingdom" ; others care nothing 
about the poor. 

(7) Christ Was to Furnish His People Teachers. 

Prophecy: "And though the Lord give you the bread 
of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy 



96 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine 
eyes shall see thy teachers" (Isa. 30:20). 

Fulfillment: "And He gave some, apostles; and some, 
prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and 
teachers" (Eph. 4:11). 

Note : The teachers that Christ was to give His people 
were not to be cornered off as amounting to nothing; they 
were to stand forth in the eyes of the world as leading 
lights; it has literally come to pass; His ministers carry 
elections; they effect great reforms; when they speak, the 
whole world listens. 

(8) Christ Was to Reign as King in Righteousness. 

Prophecy: "Behold, a King shall reign in righteous- 
ness" (Isa. 32:1). 

Fulfillment: "Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art 
Thou a King then? Jesus answered, Thou say est that I 
am a King. To this end was I born, and for this cause 
came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the 
truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth My voice" 
(Jno. 18: 37). "And He hath on His vesture and on His 
thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF 
LORDS" (Rev. 19:16). 

Note: Thank God that Jesus is King; all Christians 
belong to the royal family; we must not disgrace by 
wicked living the great family name. 

(9) Christ Was to Have Ruling Princes— Apostles. 

Prophecy: "Behold, a King shall reign in righteous- 
ness, and princes shall rule in judgment" (Isa. 32:1). 

Fulfillment: "And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say 
unto you, That ye who have followed Me, in the regen- 
eration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 97 

glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the 
twelve tribes of Israel" (Matt. 19:28). 

Note: In Acts 15:1-31; 16:4 you will find these 
apostles ruling in the Church just as Isaiah and Jesus said 
they would; their decisions recorded in the New Testa- 
ment will ever be final authority for the Church till the 
very judgment day. 

(10) Christ's Followers Were to Hide in Him. 

Prophecy: "And a Man shall be as an hiding place 
from the wind, and a Covert from the tempest" (Isa. 32 : 
2). 

Fulfillment: "For ye are dead, and your life is hid 
with Christ in God" (Col. 3:3). 

Note: How did Isaiah know that One would come into 
this world, Who would be a hiding Place for the just? 
The Bible is Inspired.

(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to be As a Great Rock in a Weary 
Land. 

Prophecy: "And a Man shall be as an hiding Place 
from the wind, and a Covert from the tempest; as Rivers 
of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great Rock in 
a weary land" (Isa. 32:2). 

Fulfillment: "Upon this Rock (Christ's Deity that 
Peter confessed) I will build My Church; and the gates 
of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). "They 
drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them : and that 
Rock was Christ" (1 Cor. 10:4). "For consider Him That 
endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, 
lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds" (Heb. 12:3). 

Note: Christ truly is our "Rock in a weary land"; 
when weary we obtain rest on this Rock; we have so often 
to lean upon, and rest upon the heart-love of Christ; He 
keeps us from fainting in the "weary land." 

(2) The Holy Spirit Was to be Poured upon God's 
People in the Time of Christ. 

Prophecy: "Until the Spirit be poured upon us from 
on high" (Isa. 32:15). "And it shall come to pass after- 
ward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh" (Joel 
2:28). 

Fulfillment: "And they were filled with the Holy 
Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the 
Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:4). "And we are 
His witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 99 

Spirit, Whom God hath given to them that obey Him" 
(Acts 5:32). 

Note : The prophets said The Holy Spirit would be 
poured upon all God's people; the New Testament shows 
God began to pour Him upon the early Church; He ever 
will give the Holy Spirit to them that love Christ. 

(3) Christ Was to Give His People Sure Dwellings 
Where They Would Have Peace and Rest. 

Prophecy : "And My people shall dwell in a peaceable 
habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting 
places" (Isa. 32:18). 

Fulfillment: "Therefore whosoever heareth these 
sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a 
wise man, who built his house upon a rock: and the rain 
descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, 
and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was 
founded upon a rock" (Matt. 7:24, 25). "He that eateth 
My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth in Me, and I 
in him" (Jno. 6:56). 

Note : Christians live in houses built upon the Rock of 
Ages — they never fall— they are "sure dwellings", as the 
prophet said; also, Christians live in Christ, and a more 
"sure Dwelling" is not possible; Christians dwell in 
heavenly places — "sure dwellings" again (Eph. 1:3; 2:6; 
3:10) ; Christians live in such "sure dwellings" that they 
fear none of the storms of life. 

(4) Christ's People Were not to be Fierce. 

Prophecy: "Thou shalt not see a fierce people" (Isa. 
33:19). 

Fulfillment : "If I go not away, the Comforter will not 
come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you" 



100 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(Jno. 16:7). "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, 
peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meek- 
ness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they 
that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affec- 
tions and lusts" (Gal. 5:22-24). 

Note: Christ gives His people the Holy Spirit; the 
Holy Spirit in the life produces love, joy, peace, long- 
suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and tem- 
perance, which take all the "fierceness" out of them, just 
as T saiah said ; it is literally fulfilled in every one that 
lives the teachings of Christ; the Bible was not written by 
uninspired men. 

(5) Christ, and His People Were to be Simple in 

Their Teaching. 

Prophecy: "Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a 
people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive; of a 
stammering tongue, that thou canst not understand" (Isa. 
33 :19) . "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it 
shall be called the way of holiness; the unclean shall not 
pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, 
though fools, shall not err therein" (Isa. 35:8). 

Fulfillment: "But I fear, lest by any means, as the 
serpent beguiled Eve through his subtility, so your minds 
should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ" 
(2 Cor. 11:3). 

Note : Mark the force of the expression, "The sim- 
plicity that is in Christ" ; Paul preached not with excel- 
lency of speech — just preached Christ (1 Cor. 2:1, 2); 
the gospel is the simplest teaching on earth, and some 
stumble over its simplicity. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 101 

(6) Christ Was to be to His People Broad Rivers and 
Streams, Such as Boats Never Traverse, 

Prophecy: "But there the glorious Lord will be unto 

us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go 
no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass there- 
by" (Isa. 33:21). 

Fulfillment: "He that believeth on Me, as the Scrip- 
ture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living 
water" (Jno. 7:38). "And he showed me a pure river of 
water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne 
of God and of the Lamb" (Rev. 22:1). 

Note : Boats do not ply up and down the River of Life 
flowing through the Church of our Lord, neither do they 
pass over the "heart-rivers" flowing out of the soul; the 
"Holy Spirit-Rivers" that rise up out of the inner man 
were seen by Isaiah; he had to be Inspired. 

(7) Christ Was to be Judge, Lawgiver, King, and 
Saviour. 

Prophecy : "For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our 
Lawgiver, the Lord is our King; He will save us" (Isa. 
33:22). 

Fulfillment: "For the Father judgeth no man, but 
hath committed all judgment unto the Son" (Jno. 5:22). 
"Until the day in which He was taken up, after that He 
through the Holy Spirit had given commandments unto 
the apostles whom He had chosen" (Acts 1 :2). "He hath 
on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING 
OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" (Rev. 19:16). "He 
shall save His people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21). 

Note : In Jno. 5 :22 we found Jesus Judge ; in Acts 1 :2 
we found Him a Lawgiver; in Rev. 19:16 we found Him 



102 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

King; in Matt. 1 :21 we found Him a Saviour, all the four 
things that Isaiah said He would be; how did the prophet 
know all these things? He was inspired. 

(8) Christ Was to Make the Lame to Walk. 

Prophecy: 'Then shall the lame man leap as an hart" 
(Isa. 35:6). 

Fulfillment: "And the lame walk" (Matt. 11:5). 

Note: Isaiah said the lame would walk; Jesus said 
they did; how did Isaiah know? You answer. 

(9) Christ Was to Make the Dumb to Speak. 

Prophecy: "And the tongue of the dumb sing" (Isa. 
35:6). 

Fulfillment: "As they went out, behold, they brought 
to Him a dumb man possessed with a devil. And when 
the devil was cast out, the dumb spake : and the multi- 
tudes marveled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel" 
(Matt. 9:32, 33). 

Note: How did Isaiah know Jesus would make the 
dumb to speak? It had never been done in Israel; if all 
this was of man, the prophet never would have told of 
any one who would make the dumb to speak, as he would 
have known that time would prove him a liar ; the Bible is 
Inspired. 

(10) One Crying in the Wilderness Was to Prepare 
the Way for Christ. 

Prophecy: "The voice of him that crieth in the wil- 
derness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight 
in the desert a highway for our God" (Isa. 40:3). 

Fulfillment: "In those days came John the Baptist, 
preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, and saying, Re- 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 103 

pent ye : for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this 
is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, 
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the 
way of the Lord, make His paths straight" (Matt. 3:1-3). 
Note: Nothing could have been fulfilled more nearly 
to the letter than was Isaiah's prophecy concerning John's 
ministry in preparation for Christ; what kind of a mind 
do you say was back of such? 



104 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 18 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

( 1 ) Christ Was to Come During the Time of Prepara- 
tion in the Wilderness' — the Ministry of John the Baptist. 

Prophecy: "The voice of him that crieth in the wil- 
derness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in 
the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be 
exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; 
and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough 
places plain: and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, 
and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the 
Lord hath spoken it" (Isa. 40:3-5). 

Fulfillment: "And it came to pass in those days, that 
Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized 
of John in Jordan" (Mark 1:9). 

Note: Since John baptized Christ, we know that Jesus 
came in his day; how did Isaiah know that Jesus would 
come during John's ministry? He was Inspired; so is the 
Bible. 

(2) The Word of Christ Was to Stand Forever. 

Prophecy: "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: 
but the word of our God shall stand forever" (Isa. 40:8). 

Fulfillment: "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but 
My words shall not pass away" (Matt. 24:35). 

Note : His word has passed through many and all 
kinds of fires, and it yet remains, just as He said, and so 
will it on and on forever; the Bible is an unfailing Book; 
do not be afraid to believe its every word — it is from God. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 105 

(3) Christ Was to Have the Gospel Preached from 
Jerusalem, and from the Church— Zion. 

Prophecy: "0 Zion, that bringest good tidings (gos- 
pel), get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, 
that bringest good tidings (gospel), lift up thy voice with 
strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of 
Judah, Behold your God" (Isa. 40:9). 

Fulfillment: "Thus it is written, and thus it behoved 
Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day : 
and that repentance and remission of sins should be 
preached in His name among all nations, beginning at 
Jerusalem" (Luke 24:46, 47). 

Note : Read all of the second chapter of Acts, and you 
will find this fulfilled — the gospel preached in Jerusalem; 
according to Isaiah, the gospel that was to be preached 
at Jerusalem, and from the Zion-Church, was to be con- 
cerning the GOD-CHRIST; it was to be "good tidings"— 
gospel — about Jesus, given to the world by the tribe of 
Judah; it all came to pass literally; the Bible is Inspired. 

(4) Christ Was to be a Shepherd, and Have a Flock. 

Prophecy: ''He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd: 
He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them 
in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with 
young" (Isa. 40:11). 

Fulfillment: "Then said Jesus unto them again, Ver- 
ily, verily, I say unto you, I am the Door of the sheep. All 
that ever came before Me are thieves and robbers : but the 
sheep did not hear them. I am the Door: by Me if any 
man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, 
and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, 
and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might 



106 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 
I am the good Shepherd : the good Shepherd giveth His 
life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the 
shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf 
coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf 
catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling 
fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the 
sheep. I am the good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and 
am known of Mine. As the Father knoweth Me, even so 
know I the Father: and I lay down My life for the sheep. 
And other sheep I have (Gentiles), which are not of this 
fold (Jewish fold) : them also I must bring, and they shall 
hear My voice; and there shall be one fold (New Testa- 
ment Church), and one Shepherd" (Jno. 10:7-16). 

Note : According to Isaiah, Jesus was to feed His 
sheep, gather weak ones with His arms, carry them in His 
bosom, gently lead those with young, and from the lips of 
Jesus we find that He is all that the prophet said He 
would be; Isaiah was inspired, so is the Bible. 

(5) Christ Was to Rule over Kings. 

Prophecy: "Who raised up the Righteous Man from 
the East, called Him to His foot, gave the nations before 
Him, and made Him rule over kings" (Isa. 41:2)? 

Fulfillment: "And from Jesus Christ, Who is the 
faithful Witness, and the First Begotten of the dead, and 
the Prince of the kings of the earth" (Rev. 1:5). 

Note : The kings over whom Christ here reigns are 
members of His Church (Rev. 1 :6) ; as political kings be- 
come Christians, they will come under the reign of the 
King-Christ. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 107 

(6) Christ Was to be the First and the Last. 

Prophecy: "I the Lord, the First, and with the last; 
I am He" (Isa. 41:4). 

Fulfillment: "I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning 
and the End, the First and the Last" (Rev. 22 :13) . 

Note : Isaiah could not have referred to any man that 
was first and last — it is Jesus ; the prophecy is fulfilled 
literally; what shall we do with the Bible? Believe it with 
the faith of children. 

(7) Christ Was to be a Servant. 

Prophecy: "Behold, My Servant, Whom I uphold" 
(Isa. 42:1). 

Fulfillment: "Even as the Son of man came not to be 
ministered unto but to minister, and to give His life a ran- 
som for many" (Matt. 20:28). "Blessed are those serv- 
ants, whom the Lord when He cometh shall find watch- 
ing: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and 
make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and 
serve them" (Luke 12:37). 

Note : Jesus served in this world ; He has promised to 
serve His people in the next life; Isaiah knew what he 
was talking about when he said Jesus would be a Servant. 

(8) Christ Was to be an Elect, One Foreordained. 

Prophecy: "Behold My Servant, Whom I uphold; 
Mine Elect, in Whom My soul delighteth" (Isa. 42:1). 

Fulfillment: "For Whom He did foreknow, He also 
did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, 
that He might be the Firstborn among many brethren" 
(Rom. 8:29). 

Note : It was only by direct inspiration from God that 



108 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Isaiah knew that Jesus would be an "Elect", One pre- 
destinated to be the "Firstborn", as Paul expressed it; 
this is a great Bible. 

(9) God Was to Delight in Christ. 

Prophecy: "Mine Elect, in Whom My soul delighteth" 
(Isa. 42:1). 

Fulfillment: "This is My Beloved Son, in Whom I am 
well pleased" (Matt. 3:17). 

Note : It was again by Inspiration that Isaiah knew 
how pleasing Christ would be to God; it is strange that 
Christ is not pleasing to all people; they simply do not 
know Him. 

(10) God Was to Put His Spirit upon Christ. 

Prophecy: "I have put My Spirit upon Him" (Isa. 
42:1). 

Fulfillment: "And Jesus when He was baptized, went 
up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens 
were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God 
descending like a Dove, and lighting upon Him" (Matt. 
3:16). 

Note: This was a strange event, one that could not 
have been imagined by the uninspired; we shall soon 
think that the prophets left nothing untold concerning the 
life and ministry of Jesus; we have a great Bible.

LESSON NO. 19 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

( 1 ) Christ Was Not to be a Street-Preacher. 

Prophecy: "He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause 
His voice to be heard in the street'' (Isa. 42:2). 

Fulfillment: "When Jesus knew it, He withdrew Him- 
self from thence: and great multitudes followed Him, and 
He healed them all; and charged them that they should 
not make Him known : that it might be fulfilled which was 
spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Behold My Servant, 
Whom I have chosen; My Beloved, in Whom My Soul is 
well pleased: I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall 
show judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor 
cry; neither shall any man hear His voice in the streets" 
(Matt. 12:15-19). 

Note : Street-preaching was not in the program of 
Christ; it belittles His cause to-day; people should as- 
semble in quiet places to hear the glorious gospel of Jesus 
Christ. 

(2) Christ Was to be too Harmless to Break a Bruised 
Reed, or to Quench Smoking Flax. 

Prophecy: "A bruised reed shall He not break, and 
the smoking flax shall He not quench" (Isa. 42:3). 

Fulfillment: "That it might be fulfilled which was 
spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Behold My Servant, 
Whom I have chosen; My Beloved, in Whom My soul is 
well pleased : I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall 
show judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor 
cry; neither shall any man hear His voice in the streets. 



110 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall 
He not quench, till He send forth judgment unto victory" 
(Matt. 12:17-20). 

Note : It would be great if all members of the Church 
would get some of the harmless Spirit of Christ, and not 
seek to damage others. 

(3) Christ Was to be a Covenant. 

Prophecy: "I the Lord have called Thee in righteous- 
ness, and will hold Thine hand, and will keep Thee, and 
give Thee for a Covenant of the people, for a light of the 
Gentiles; to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners 
from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the 
prison house" (Isa. 42:6, 7). 'Thus saith the Lord, in an 
acceptable time have I heard Thee, and in a day of salva- 
tion have I helped Thee and I will preserve Thee, and 
give Thee for a Covenant of the people, to establish the 
earth (raise up the earth), to cause to inherit the deso- 
late heritages ; that Thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go 
forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. 
They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in 
all high places. They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither 
shall the heat nor sun smite them : for He that hath mercy 
on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water 
shall He guide them. And I will make all My mountains a 
way, and My highways shall be exalted" (Isa. 49:8-11). 

Fulfillment: 'That in the dispensation of the fulness 
of times He might gather together in one all things in 
Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; 
even in Him" (Eph. 1:10). "For this cause I bow my 
knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Whom 
the whole family in heaven and earth is named" (Eph. 
3:14, 15). "But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 111 

were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For 
He is our Peace, Who hath made both one, and hath brok- 
en down the middle wall of partition between us" (Eph. 
2:13, 14). "That He might reconcile both unto God in 
one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby" 
(Eph. 2:16). 

Note: "COVENANT" means "THE JOINING TO- 
GETHER TWO BY AN AGREEMENT;" Christ is such a 
Covenant; He came to join together Jew and Gentile — He 
is their Covenant, their Agreement; then His larger work 
as a COVENANT is TO JOIN THIS WORLD TO GOD, by 
reconciling the world to God ; Christ takes those in heaven 
and all Christians on earth, and makes ONE FAMILY of 
them, the family of the two worlds wearing His name 
(Eph. 3:15, 16); in order to be the COVENANT or 
AGREEMENT between those of two worlds — heaven and 
earth — He does the following, according to prophecy: He 
is a Light — He opens blind eyes — liberates sin-prisoners — 
He establishes the earth, raiseth it up all the way to heav- 
en — He feeds His people — He gives them pastures in high 
places — He prevents too much heat- — He mercifully leads 
them by springs of water — and gives them a Mountainous 
Way to heaven. 

(4) Christ Was to Declare New Things. 

Prophecy: "Behold, the former things are come to 
pass, and new things do I declare : before they spring 
forth I tell you of them" (Isa. 42:9). 

Fulfillment: "And they were all amazed, and they 
glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have 
seen strange things to-day" (Luke 5:26). 

Note : The old order of things, the Jewish system, was 



112 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

fulfilled in Christ, and He taught a new system of re- 
ligion ; old things were passed away, all things were be- 
come new (2 Cor. 5:17). 

(5) Christ Was to be Blind by Not Seeing Wicked- 
ness, and Deaf by Not Hearing Wicked Reports. 

Prophecy: "Who is blind, but My Servant? or deaf, 
as My Messenger That I sent? Who is blind as He That is 
Perfect, and blind as the Lord's Servant? Seeing many 
things, but Thou observest not; opening the ears, but He 
heareth not" (Isa. 42:19, 20). 

Fulfillment: "And the scribes and Pharisees brought 
unto Him a woman taken in adultery; and when they 
had set her in the midst, they say unto Him, Master, this 
woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses 
in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but 
what sayest Thou? This they said, tempting Him, that 
they might have to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down, 
and with His finger wrote on the ground, as though He 
heard them not. So when they continued asking Him, He 
lifted up Himself, and said unto them, He that is without 
sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again 
He stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they 
who heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, 
went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto 
the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman stand- 
ing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and 
saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, 
where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned 
thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, 
Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more" (Jno. 
8:3-11). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 113 

Note: Isaiah said Jesus would be blind and deaf, to 
sin and evil reports, of course ; Jesus was deaf to the ac- 
cusations brought against a sinful woman; only the sinless 
have a right to accuse others; there are none sinless, so 
we should have no accusations; Jesus was blind to her 
sins, dealt with her as He would the innocent, only send- 
ing her away to sin no more ; O that so-called Christians 
were thus blind and deaf! 

(6) Christ's People Were to be Called by His Name. 

Prophecy: "I will say to the north, Give up; and to 
the south, Keep not back: bring My sons from far, and 
My daughters from the ends of the earth ; even every one 
that is called by My name" (Isa. 43:6, 7). 

Fulfillment: "And when he had found him, he 
brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a 
whole year they assembled themselves with the church, 
and taught much people. And the disciples were called 
Christians first in Antioch" (Acts 11:26). "Yet if any 
man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed ; but let 
him glorify God on this behalf" (1 Peter 4:16). "Do not 
they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are 
called" (Jas. 2:7)? "Neither is there salvation in any 
other: for there is none other name under heaven given 
among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). 

Note : The word Christian is a dual word — Christ-ian 
— and means "Belonging to Christ" ; it is a great honor 
given us to wear Christ's name, and we should ever pro- 
tect it with godly living. 

(7) Christ's Followers Were to be Creatures of His 
Own Creation, and for His Glory. 

Prophecy: "Every one that is called by My name: for 



114 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

I have created him for My glory, I have formed him; yea, 
I have made him" (Isa. 43:7). 

Fulfillment: "What? know ye not that your body is 
the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, Whom ye 
have of God, and ye are not your own? for ye are bought 
with a price : therefore glorify God in your body, and in 
your spirit, which are God's (1 Cor. 6:19, 20). 

Note : We are creatures of His making ; we are not 
our own; we should glorify Him in all things. 

(8) Christ's People Were to Witness for Him. 

Prophecy: "Ye are My witnesses, saith the Lord, and 
My Servant Whom I have chosen : that ye may know and 
believe Me, and understand that I am He" (Isa. 43:10). 

Fulfillment: "And we are His witnesses of these 
things; and so is also the Holy Spirit, Whom God hath 
given to them that obey Him" (Acts 5 :32) . 

Note: Christians do not witness enough for Christ; 
we are to witness that others may hear of and believe 
Christ; we should witness for Christ by word and deed. 

(9) Some Jews Were to Accept Christ, and Others 
Were to Hold on to Jacob. 

Prophecy: "One shall say, I am the Lord's; and 
another shall call himself by the name of Jacob ; and 
another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and 
surname himself by the name of Israel" (Isa. 44:5). 

Fulfillment: "And the word of God increased; and 
the number of disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; 
and a great company of the priests were obedient to the 
faith" (Acts 6:7). "And certain men who came down

circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be

saved" (Acts 15:1). "It was necessary that the word of 
God should first have been spoken to you : but seeing ye put 
it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting 
life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles" (Acts 13 :46). 

Note: Isaiah saw and described three classes among 
the Jews: first, those who would renounce the Jewish 
religion for Christianity; second, those that would not 
accept Christ at all ; third, those that would accept Christ, 
and also hold on to the Jewish religion, and in the proofs 
given in the foregoing we have all three classes set forth 
in the New Testament — - a literal fulfillment of Isaiah's 
prophecy. 

(10) Christ Was to Offer Salvation to All Nations — It 
Was not to Be for One Only. 

Prophecy: "Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the 
ends of the earth" (Isa. 45 :22) . 

Fulfillment: "And He said unto them, Go ye into all 
the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He 
that believeth and is baptized shall be saved ; but he that 
believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16:15,16). 

Note: Under the Old Testament the Jews were God's 
people; under the New Testament any one, Jew or Gen- 
tile, may have salvation. 



116 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 20 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Be Named Before He Was Born. 

Prophecy : 'The Lord hath called Me from the womb ; 
from the bowels of My Mother hath He made mention of 
iMyname" (Isa. 49:1). 

Fulfillment: "And she shall bring forth a Son, and 
thou shall call His name Jesus" (Matt. 1:21). 

Note: How did Isaiah know that Jesus would be 
named before he was born? Only by Inspiration. 

(2) Christ's Mouth Was to Be Made Like a Sharp 

Sword. 

Prophecy: "And He hath made My mouth like a 
sharp sword" (Isa. 49:2). 

Fulfillment: "And out of His mouth went a sharp two- 
edged sword" (Rev. 1:16). 

Note: Isaiah was not guessing about that sword busi- 
ness; the twoedged sword from the mouth of Christ is 
the Bible — Old and New Testament (Heb. 4:12); we 
need to put more Bible into our mouths — make them more 
like twoedged swords. 

(3) Christ Was to Have Two Sets of Followers, and 

Was to Lose One Set. 

Prophecy: "The children whom Thou shalt have, 
after Thou hast lost the other, shall say again in Thine 
ears, the place is too strait for me : give place to Me that 
I may dwell. Then shalt Thou say in Thine heart, Who 
hath begotten Me these, seeing I have lost My children" 
(Isa. 49:20, 21). "Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 117 

will lift up Mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up My 
standard to the people : and they shall bring Thy sons in 
their arms, and Thy daughters shall be carried upon their 
shoulders" (Isa. 49:22). 

Fulfillment: "And the apostles and brethren that 
were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received 
the word of God" (Acts 11:1). "I say then, Have they 
stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather 
through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for 
to provoke them to jealousy" (Rom. 11:11). 

Note : Jewish Christians were the first set of children 
that Christ had ; the Gentile Christians are the second set 
of Christ's children; according to Isaiah, the second set 
of children were to outnumber the first set — they would 
ask for more room; how did Isaiah know there would be 
two brotherhoods of Christians — Jews and Gentiles, and 
that the first set would soon be no more? Only by Inspi- 
ration did he know these things. 

(4) Christ Was to Give His Back to the Smiters. 

Prophecy: "I gave My back to the smiters, and My 
checks to them that pluck off the hair" (Isa. 50:6). 

Fulfillment: "Others smote Him with the palms of 
their hands" (Matt. 26:67). "And when he had scourged 
Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified" (Matt.27 :26). 
"And the men that held Jesus mocked Him, and smote 
Him" (Luke 22:63). "And they smote Him with their 
hands" (Jno. 19:3). 

Note : Nothing could have been fulfilled more liter- 
ally; the prophet was not guessing. 

(5) They Were to Spit upon Christ. 



118 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Prophecy: "I hid not My face from shame and spit- 
ting" (Isa. 50:6). 

Fulfillment: 'Then did they spit in His face" (Matt. 
26 :67) . /'And they spit upon Him" (Matt. 27 :30) . 

Note : Our blood chills as we read of their spitting in 
His face; those unfaithful to Him now treat Him as 
cruelly; what are we doing with Jesus? 

(6) Christ Was to Set His Face as a Flint. 

Prophecy: "Therefore have I set My face like a flint" 
(Isa. 50:7). 

Fulfillment: "And it came to pass, when the time 
was come that He was to be received up, He steadfastly 
set His face to go to Jerusalem" (Luke 9:51). 

Note: His "steadfastly setting His face," or "setting 
it like a flint," shows He was immovable in His purpose 
to go to Jerusalem and die for the world; it shows how 
Christ threw all the power of body, soul, and spirit into 
the accomplishing of His purpose of dying on the cross; 
it would be great, if we would throw all of our forces 
into serving Him. 

(7) Christ Was to Plant Heavens, and Lay Founda- 
tions of an Earth. 

Prophecy: "And I have put My words in Thy mouth, 
and I have covered Thee in the shadow of Mine hand, 
that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of 
the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art My people" (Isa. 
51:16). 

Fulfillment: "Blessed be the God and Father of our 
Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual 
blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Eph. 1:3). "And 
hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 119 

heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Eph. 2:6). "To the 
intent that now unto the principalities and powers in 
heavenly places might be known by the Church the 
manifold wisdom of God" (Eph. 3:10). "Who serve unto 
the example and shadow of heavenly things" (Heb. 8:5). 
"And have tasted of the heavenly Gift" (Heb. 6:4). "The 
heavenly Jerusalem" (Heb. 12:22). 

Note: Most people plant hells; Christ planted heav- 
ens — "heavenly places"; His Church is called heaven 
many times; what are we planting? How did Isaiah 
know what Jesus would plant? The Bible is Inspired. 

(8) Christ's Watchmen-Apostles Were to See Him 
Face-to-Face While He Established His Church-Zion. 

Prophecy: "Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; 
with the voice together shall they sing : for they shall see 
eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion" (Isa. 
52:8). 

Fulfillment: "And that He was buried, and that 
He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures: 
and that He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve : 
after that, He was seen of above five hundred brethren 
at once ; of whom the greater part remain unto this pres- 
ent, but some are fallen asleep. After that, He was seen 
of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all He 
was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time" (1 
Cor. 15:4-8). 

Note: Those who bore testimony to the Deity of 
Christ were eye-witness of His majesty; these witnesses 
of Christ were "watchmen" ; they lifted up their voice in 
preaching the truth ; they sang His praise — they knew 
He is the Christ of God. 



120 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(9) Christ Was to Sprinkle Many Nations. 

Prophecy: "So shall He sprinkle many nations" (Isa. 
52:15). 

Fulfillment: "Let us draw near with a true heart in 
full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from 
an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure 
water" (Heb. 10:22). 

Note : The only way to sprinkle the heart from an 
evil conscience is to quit evil, quit sin, which is a genuine 
case of repentance ; Christ came to call sinners to repent- 
ance (Matt. 9:13) ; Heaven rejoices when sinners repent 
(Luke 15:7) ; hell is asking sinners to repent (Luke 16: 
30) ; it is time to repent, thus sprinkling the heart from 
an evil conscience. 

(10) Christ Was to Die for the Sins of Others. 

Prophecy: "He was wounded for our transgressions, 
He was bruised for our iniquities" (Isa. 53:5). 

Fulfillment: "Who His own Self bare our sins in His 
body on the tree" (1 Peter 2:24). 

Note: Man could not pay his sin-debt; Jesus paid it 
for him: we cannot love Him enough. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 121 

LESSON NO. 21 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Be Silent While Being Abused. 

Prophecy: "He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, 
yet He opened not His mouth : He is brought as a Lamb 
to the slaughter, and as a Sheep before her shearer is 
dumb, so He openeth not His mouth" (Isa. 53:7). 

Fulfillment: "But Jesus held His peace" (Matt. 26: 
63). "And He answered him to never a word; insomuch 
that the governor marveled greatly" (Matt. 27:14). "And 
when He was accused of the chief priests and elders, He 
answered nothing" (Matt. 27:12). "But He held His 
peace, and answered nothing" (Mark 14:61). "But 
Jesus yet answered nothing" (Mark 15:5). "Who, when 
He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He 
threatened not; but committed Himself to Him That 
judgeth righteously" (1 Peter 2:23). 

Note: Could Isaiah have guessed such silence? Has 
any man ever maintained such silent composure? The 
Bible is Inspired. 

(2) Christ Was to Be Buried in the Tomb of the Rich, 

of Another. 

Prophecy: "And He made His grave with the wicked, 
and with the rich in His death" (Isa. 53:9). 

Fulfillment: "When the even was come, there came a 
rich man of Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself 
was Jesus' disciple : he went to Pilate, and begged the body 
of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. 
And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a 



122 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he 
had hewn out in the rock : and he rolled a great stone to the 
door of the sepulchre, and departed" (Matt. 27:57-60). 

Note : Christ was to be buried with the wicked — He 
was ; He was to be buried in the tomb of another — -He was ; 
He was to be buried in the tomb of a rich man — He was; 
was Isaiah Inspired? 

(3) Christ Was to Justify Many. 

Prophecy: "By His knowledge shall My righteous Ser- 
vant justify many" (Isa. 53:11). * 

Fulfillment: "Therefore as by the offence of one judg- 
ment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the 
righteousness of One the free gift came upon all men unto 
justification of life" (Rom. 5:18). 

Note: It came just as the prophet said; the Bible is 
from God. 

(4) Christ Was to Have a Portion with the Great. 

Prophecy: "Therefore will I divide Him a portion with 
the great" (Isa. 53:12). 

Filf ullment : "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted 
Him, and given Him a name which is above every name" 
(Phil. 2:9). 

Note : Christ had a portion with the world's great when 
He was buried in the rich man's tomb; He has a greater 
portion with the great in His heavenly exaltation. 

(5) Christ Was to Divide the Spoil with the Strong. 

Prophecy: "He shall divide the spoil with the strong" 
(Isa. 53:12). 

Fulfillment: "Then the soldiers, when they had cruci- 
fied Jesus, took His garments, and made four parts, to 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 123 

every soldier a part; and also His coat: now the coat was 
without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said 
therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast 
lots for it, whose it shall be" (Jno. 19:23, 24). 

Note: Think how naked the souls of the soldiers were 
that wore on their physical bodies the clothes of Jesus 
Christ; He did divide the spoil with those considered 
great; He now offers all the garments of righteousness. 

(6) Christ's Death Was to Be Voluntary. 

Prophecy: "He has poured out His soul unto death" 
(Isa 53:12). 

Fulfillment: "Therefore doth My Father love Me, 
because I lay down My life, that I might take it again. No 
man taketh it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have 
power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again" 
(Jno. 10:17, 18). 

Note : His enemies thought they killed Him, so reported 
it; He gave His own life as a ransom; He died of a broken 
heart — not from the crucifixion (Psa. 22:14). 

(7) Christ Was to Die with Transgressors. 

Prophecy: "He was numbered with the transgressors" 
(Isa. 53:12). 

Fulfillment: "There they crucified Him, and the male- 
factors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left" 
(Luke 23:33). 

Note : Isaiah saw that Jesus would be put to death 
with sinners ; he saw there would be more than one die with 
Jesus; how did the prophet know? Is the Bible Inspired? 

(8) While Dying Christ Was to Pray for Transgres- 
sors. 



124 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Prophecy: "And made intercession for transgressors" 
(Isa. 53:12). 

Fulfillment: "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; 
for they know not what they do" (Luke 23 :34) . 

Note: It was a literal fulfillment of what the prophet 
said; was he guessing? Is the Bible from God? Do we 
pray for those who sin against us ? 

(9) Christ Was to Be God's Witness to the People. 

Prophecy: "I have given Him for a Witness to the 
people" (Isa. 55:4). 

Fulfillment: "For there are three that bear record in 
heaven, the Father, the Word (Christ), and the Holy Spirit: 
and these three are One. And there are three that bear 
witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood 
(of Christ) : and these three agree in one"(l Jno. 5:7, 8). 

Note: Christ witnesseth for Christians; He witnesseth 
against sinners ; we may make the witness what we desire. 

(10) Christ Was to Come When There Was No Real 

Man, and Show What It Is to be a MAN. 

Prophecy: "And He saw that there was no man, and 
wondered that there was no Intercessor : therefore His arm 
brought salvation unto him; and His righteousness, it 
sustained him" (Isa. 59:16). 

Fulfillment : "And so it is written, The first man Adam 
was made a living soul ; the last Adam was made a quicken- 
ing Spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is Spiritual, 
but that which is natural; and afterward that which is 
Spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy : the second 
Man is the Lord from heaven" (1 Cor. 15:45-47). 

Note : Isaiah said There would be no man on earth when 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 125 

Jesus came ; Paul said Adam was the first MAN, and Jesus 
was the second MAN; if Jesus was the second MAN, and 
Adam was the first MAN, then Jesus found no MAN on the 
earth when He came ; how did the Prophet know ? Who gave 
us the Bible? What is a man? Are we men? How may we 
become hundred per cent men? The Standard is in Christ 
— -He shows us how; the gospel tells us how. 



126 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 22 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Repay According to Our Deeds. 

Prophecy: "According to their deeds, accordingly He 
will repay" (Isa. 59:18). 

Fulfillment : "Who will render to every man according 
to his deeds" (Rom. 2:6). 

Note: We reap what we sow (Gal. 6:7) ; we get what 
we work for. 

(2) Christ Was to Bring up His People upon an Altar. 

Prophecy : "They shall come up with acceptance on Mine 
altar, and I will glorify the house of My glory" (Isa.60:7). 

Fulfillment : "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the 
mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacri- 
fice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable 
service" (Rom. 12:1). 

Note: The literal meaning of the word "sanctuary", 
one of the names of the Church, is, "The Church built 
around the altar" ; the prophet saw that Christians would 
be reared on the cross-altar; such makes them acceptable. 
How did the prophet know this? Is the Bible Inspired? 

(3) Christ Was to Be Married to His People. 

Prophecy: "For as a young man marrieth a virgin, 
so shall Thy sons marry Thee: and as the bridegroom 
rejoiceth over the bride, so shall Thy God rejoice over thee" 
(Isa. 62:5). 

Fulfillment: "Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are 
become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 127 

should be married to another, even to Him Who is raised 
from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God" 
(Rom. 7:4). 

Note: We marry into Christ's family by obeying- Him; 
it is one of the greatest earthly honors to be married to the 
Son of God ; how did the prophet know such a relationship 
would exist? 

(4) Christ's Watchmen-Preachers Were Not to Keep 
Silent — They Were to Preach. 

Prophecy: "I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O 
Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day nor night : 
ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence" 
(Isa. 62:6). 

Fulfillment: "Then the twelve called the multitude of 
the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we 
should leave the word of God, and serve tables. Where- 
fore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest 
report, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may 
appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves con- 
tinually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word" 
(Acts 6:2-4). 

Note: The preachers had no time to lose from preach- 
ing and praying; they took no fishing trips while Satan 
spoiled the flock ; we have too much time to waste now, be- 
cause we do not have the interest the early Christians had. 

(5) Christ Was to Wear Red Garments. 

Prophecy: "Wherefore art Thou red in Thine apparel, 
and Thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat" 
(Isa. 63:2)? 

Fulfillment: "And He was clothed with a vesture 
dipped in blood" (Rev. 19:13). 



128 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Note : Christ went by the way of the cross ; Isaiah saw 
His bloody clothes; how did the prophet see them? 

(6) Christ Was to Give His People Things Never 
Heard of Before. 

Prophecy: "For since the beginning of the world men 
have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the 
eye seen, O God, beside Thee, what He hath prepared for 
him that waiteth for Him" (Isa. 64:4). 

Fulfillment: "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, 
nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, 
the things which God hath prepared for them that love 
Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit" 
(1 Cor. 2:9, 10). 

Note : We have in Christ what angels desired to look 
at; we have things greater than all the prophets saw; 
they foretold they would be greater, but were unable to 
fully explain them. 

(7) Under Christ People Were to Be Deluded, if They 
Rejected Him. 

Prophecy: "I also will choose their delusions, and will 
bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none 
did answer ; when I spake, they did not hear : but they did 
evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted 
not" (Isa. 86:4). 

Fulfillment: "And with all deceivableness of unright- 
eousness in them that perish; because they receive not the 
love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this 
cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should 
believe a lie : that they ail might be damned who believe not 
the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (2 Thes. 
2:10-12). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 129 

Note: Wilfully rejecting the truth is unpardonable 
(Heb. 10 :26) ; when a sinner knows the truth, knows about 
Christ, he better not wilfully reject Him. 

(8) Christ's People Were to Assemble Weekly to 
Worship Him. 

Prophecy: "From one Sabbath to another, shall all 
flesh come to worship before Me, saith the Lord" 
(Isa. 66:23). 

Fulfillment: "And upon the first day of the week, when 
the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached 
unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued 
his speech until midnight" (Acts 20:7). 

Note: How did Isaiah know that Christ's followers 
would assemble weekly to worship Him? Whence came our 
Bible anyhow? Is it Inspired? 

(9) In the Time of Christ Rachel Was to Weep, and 
Refuse to be Comforted. 

Prophecy : "Thus saith the Lord ; A voice was heard in 
Raman, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping 
for her children refused to be comforted for her children, 
because they were not" (Jer. 31:15). 

.Fulfillment: "Then Herod, when he saw that he was 
mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent 
forth and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and 
in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, 
according to the time which he had diligently inquired 
of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken 
by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice 
heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, 
Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be com- 
forted, because they are not" (Matt. 2:16-18). 



130 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Note: Was that a literal fulfillment? How did 
Jeremiah know? Is the Bible from God or from man? 

(10) Christ Was to Give a Heart-Covenant. 

Prophecy: "But this shall be the covenant that I will 
make with the house of Israel ; After those days, saith the 
Lord, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write 
it in their hearts ; and will be their God, and they shall be 
My people. And they shall teach no more every man his 
neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, know the 
Lord : for they shall all know Me, from the least of them 
unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord : for I will forgive 
their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more" 
(Jer. 31:33, 34). 

Fulfillment: "For if that first covenant had been fault- 
less, then should no place have been sought for the second. 
For finding fault with them, He saith, Behold the days 
come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with 
the house of Israel and with the house of Judah : not accord- 
ing to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the 
day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the 
land of Egypt ; because they continued not in My covenant, 
and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the 
covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after 
those days, saith the Lord; I will put My laws into their 
mind, and write them in their hearts : and I will be to them 
a God, and they shall be to Me a people : and they shall not 
teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, 
saying, Know the Lord : for all shall know Me, from the 
least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their un- 
righteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I 
remember no more" (Heb. 8:7-12). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 131 

Note: This "Heart-Covenant" has come just as Jere- 
miah said ; the religion of Jesus Christ is something carried 
around in the heart; "The kingdom of God cometh not 
with observation" (Luke 17:20) ; "The kingdom of God 
is within you" (Luke 17:21) ; no one can belong to the 
"Heart-Covenant Family" without his being a Christian; 
he cannot be a Christian and be ignorant of Christ; there- 
fore, the "Heart-Covenant" people have to know Him before 
they exist as such. 



132 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

LESSON NO. 23 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) Christ ¥/as to Be Surrounded by Thousands of 
Angels. 

Prophecy: "A fiery stream issued and came forth from 
before Him : thousand thousands ministered unto Him, and 
ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him" 
(Dan. 7:10). 

Fulif llment : "And I beheld, and I heard the voice of 
many angels round about the throne and the hearts and the 
elders : and the number of them was ten thousand times 
ten thousand, and thousands of thousands" (Rev. 5:11). 

Note: John saw the same number of angels around 
Christ that Daniel said would be around Him; how did 
Daniel know? What kind of a Bible have we, Inspired 
or uninspired? 

(2) Christ Was to Rain Righteousness upon His 
People. 

Prophecy: "For it is time to seek the Lord, till He 
come and rain righteousness upon you" (Hosea 10:12). 

Fulfillment: "But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who 
of God is made unto us Wisdom, and Righteousness, and 
Sanctification, and Redemption" (1 Cor. 1:30). 

Note : Those who have Christ in their lives live under 
the showers of Righteousness all the time; Salvation- 
Waters are rained upon them daily. 

(3) God Was to Call Christ, His Son, Out of Egypt. 

Prophecy: "When Israel was a Child, then I loved 
Him, and called My Son out of Egypt" (Hosea 11:1). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 133 



Fulfillment: "When he arose, he took the young Child 
and His mother by night, and departed into Egypt: and 
was there until the death of Herod : that it might be ful- 
filled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, 
saying, Out of Egypt have I called My Son" (Matt. 2:14, 
15). "And he arose, and took the young Child and His 
mother, and came into the land of Egypt" (Matt. 2:21). 

Note : How did Hosea know that Christ would ever 
see Egypt, and be called out of it by the Lord? The Bible 
is not of man. 

(4) People Were to Call upon Christ, and Be Saved. 

Prophecy: "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever 
shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered : for 
in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as 
the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord 
shall call" (Joel 2:32). 

Fulfillment: "For there is no difference between the 
Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich 
unto all that call upon Him. For whosoever shall call 
upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom. 10:12, 
13). 

Note: Joel saw people calling upon Christ, and saw 
Christ delivering and saving them; Paul said it had come 
true; this is a great Bible. 

(5) The Sun Was to Go Down at Noon When Christ 
Was Crucified. 

Prophecy: "And it shall come to pass in that day, 
saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down 
at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day" 
(Amos 8:9). 



134 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: "Now from the sixth hour there was 
darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour" (Matt. 
27:45). "And it was about the sixth hour, and there 
was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour" 
(Luke 23:44). 

Note : No uninspired man ever would have thought of 
darkness at noon; if Amos wanted to deceive people, he 
certainly would not have prophesied darkness at noon — 
he would have been proven a liar; God was in this; Amos 
did not lie; it came just as prophesied. 

(6) Christ Was to Have Saviours in His Church-Zion. 

Prophecy: "And Saviours shall come up on Mount 
Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall 
be the Lord's" (Obadiah 21). 

Fulfillment: "Take heed unto thyself, and unto the 
doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt 
both save thyself, and them that hear thee" (1 Tim. 4 :16) . 
"Let him know, that he that converteth a sinner from the 
error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall 
hide a multitude of sins" (Jas. 5:20). 

Note : Obadiah saw "saviours" in Christ's Zion- 
Church; Paul set forth Timothy as a "saviour"; James 
so names all people that save others from sin; "Esau" has 
become a synonym for "sin", hence, the expression, "Savi- 
ours were to judge the mount of Esau." 

(7) Christ Was to Be Born in Bethlehem. 

Prophecy: "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though 
thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of 
thee shall He come forth unto Me That is to be Ruler in 
Israel; Whose goings forth have been from of old, from 
everlasting" (Micah5:2). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 135 

Fulfillment: "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem 
of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there 
came wise men from the east to Jerusalem" (Matt. 2:1). 

Note : No uninspired man could have named the town 
where Jesus would be born; if he had been guessing, he 
would not have guessed that Christ would be born in one 
of the very small towns — he would have guessed Jerusa- 
lem to be the place; the Bible is Inspired. 

(8) Christ Was to Have Seven Eyes. 

Prophecy: "For behold the Stone that I have laid be- 
fore Joshua; upon one Stone shall be seven eyes; behold, 
I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, 
and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day" 
(Zech. 3:9). 

Fulfillment: "And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of 
the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the 
elders, stood a Lamb as It had been slain, having seven 
horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God 
sent forth into all the earth" (Hev. 5:6). 

Note: Seven in the Bible denotes "completeness" or 
"perfection"; Christ's seven horns denote complete pow- 
er; His seven eyes denote perfect vision — He sees every- 
thing; how did Zechariah know about these seven eyes? 
Is the Bible Inspired? 

(9) Christ Was Not to Corne as a Grown Person, but 
as a Child, and "Grow Up." 

Prophecy : "And speak unto Him, saying, Thus speaketh 
the Lord of hosts saying, Behold the man Whose name is the 
BRANCH; and He shall grow up out of His place, and He 
shall build the temple of the Lord" (Zech. 6:12). 



136 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: ''And the Child grew, and waxed* strong 
in Spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was 
upon Him" (Luke 2:40). "And Jesus increased in wis- 
dom and stature, and in favor with God and man" (Luke 

2:52). 

Note : Christ was "to grow up" ; He was named the 
"BRANCH"; He was to build the "Temple of the Lord", 

the Church; He did (Matt. 16:18) ; is the Bible Inspired? 

) 

(10) Those Afar Off Were to Come and Build in 
Christ's Temple-Church. 

Prophecy: "And they that are far off shall come and 
build in the temple of the Lord" (Zech. 6:15). 

Fulfillment: "But now in Christ Jesus ye who some- 
times were afar off are made nigh by the blood of Christ" 
(Eph. 2:13). "Now therefore ye are no more strangers 
and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of 
the Household of God" (Eph. 2:19). 

Note : Nothing could be more literal ; Jew and Gentile 
under Christ build together, and together enjoy all the 
fruitions of Christianity; the Bible is Inspired.

LESSON NO. 24 
(Prophecies concerning Christ) 

(1) The People Were to Know that God Sent Christ 
into the World. 

Prophecy : "And ye shall know that the Lord of hosts 
hath sent Me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye 
will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God" 
(Zech. 6:15). 

Fulfillment: "I know Whom I have believed, and am 
persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have com- 
mitted unto Him against that day" (2 Tim. 1:12). "If 
any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, 
whether it be of God, or whether I speak of Myself" ( Jno. 
7:17). 

Note : Zechariah said those that obey God would 
know Christ; that is what Jesus said; Paul knew Jesus; 
do we? 

(2) Christ Was to Teach His People Goodwill Toward 
Each Other. 

Prophecy: "These are the things that ye shall do; 
Speak ye every man the truth with his neighbor; execute 
the judgment of truth and peace in your gates: and let 
none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neigh- 
bor ; and love no false oath : for all these are things that I 
hate, saith the Lord" (Zech. 8:16, 17). 

Fulfillment: "Wherefore putting away lying, speak 
every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members 
one of another" (Eph. 4:25). 

Note : Such things should give us great faith in the 
Bible ; it surely came from Inspiration. 



138 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(3) Many Were to Seek Christ by Prayer, One's Urg- 
ing Another. 

Prophecy: ''And the inhabitants of one city shall go 
to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the 
Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts: I will go also. Yea, 
many people and strong nations shall come to seek the 
Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord" 
(Zech. 8:21, 22). 

Fulfillment: "Now Peter and John went up together 
into the temple at the hour of prayer" (Acts 3:1). "And 
now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash 
away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord" (Acts 
22:16). "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thes. 5:17). "And 
they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and 
fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers" 
(Acts 2:42). 

Note : Prayer is one of the main things in Christian- 
ity; it was not so under the law of Moses; that law did 
not command people to pray as the gospel does. 

(4) Jesus Was to Ride Triumphantly into Jerusalem. 

Prophecy: "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; 
shout, O daughter of Jerusalem : behold, thy King cometh 
unto thee: He is just, and having salvation; lowly, and 
riding upon an ass" (Zech. 9:9). 

Fulfillment: "And when they drew nigh unto Jerusa- 
lem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of 
Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, saying unto them, 
Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye 
shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and 
bring them unto Me. And if any man say ought unto you, 
ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straight- 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 139 

way he will send them. All this was done, that it might 
be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell 
ye the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy King cometh unto 
thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal 
of an ass" (Matt. 21:1-5). "And when He was come into 
Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is This" 
(Matt. 21:10)? 

Note: Jesus rode into Jerusalem just as Zechariah 
said He would; how did he know? Who gave to us our 
Bible? 

(5) Christ Was to be Sold for Thirty Pieces of Silver. 

Prophecy: "And I said to them, If ye think good, give 
Me My price ; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for My 
price thirty pieces of silver" (Zech. 11:12). 

Fulfillment: "And said unto them, What will ye give 
me, and I will deliver Him unto you? And they coven- 
anted with him for thirty pieces of silver" (Matt. 26:15). 

Note: Nothing could be more literal ; the prophet was 
not guessing; what do you now think of our Bible? Is it 
Inspired? 

(6) The Money for Which Judas Sold Christ Was to 
Be Cast to the Potter. 

Prophecy: "And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto 
the potter: a goodly price that I was priced at of them. 
And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to 
the potter in the house of the Lord" (Zech. 11:13). 

Fulfillment: "And he cast down the pieces of silver 
in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged him- 
self. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and 
said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, 
because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, 



140 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers 
in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, 
unto this day" (Matt, 27 :5-8) . 

Note: Was that not a literal fulfillment? Was he 
Inspired? Is it not a marvelous Book? 

(7) There Was to Be Great Mourning When Christ 

Was Crucified. 

Prophecy: "And I will pour upon the house of David, 
and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of 
Grace and of Supplications: and they shall look upon Me 
Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, 
as one mourn eth for his only son, and shall be in bitter- 
ness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. 
In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, 
as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megid- 
don. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the 
family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; 
the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives 
apart ; the family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives 
apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; 
all the families that remain, every family apart, and their 
wives apart" (Zech. 12:10-14). 

Fulfillment: "And there followed Him a great com- 
pany of people, and of women, who also bewailed and 
lamented Him" (Luke 23:27). 

Note: A great company bewailed and lamented when 
Jesus was crucified, but all of that story cannot be told in 
words : how did the prophet know they would pierce Him, 
and thus weep for Him? Our Bible did come from above. 

(8) Christ as a Shepherd Was to be Smitten, and His 
Sheep Scattered. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 141 

Prophecy: "Smite the Shepherd, and the sheep shall 
be scattered" (Zech. 13:7). 

Fulfillment: "Then said Jesus unto them, All ye shall 
be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I 
will smite the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall 
be scattered abroad" (Matt. 26:31). "Then all the dis- 
ciples forsook Him, and fled" (Matt. 26:56). 

Note : Could anything be fulfilled more literally than 
in this case? Was Zechariah guessing? If so, he was a 
great guesser. 

(9) After the Coming of Christ, There Was to Be 
One Lord. 

Prophecy: "And the Lord shall be King over all the 
earth: in that day there shall be one Lord, and His name 
one" (Zech. 14:9). 

Fulfillment: "One Lord, one faith, one baptism" 
(Eph. 4:5). "Neither is there salvation in any other: for 
there is none other name under heaven given among men, 
whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). 

Note : One Lord, and one name prophesied ; that is 
just what we find in the New Testament; what now have 
you to say of our Bible? Is it from God or from men? 
Heaven awaits your answer. 

(10) Christ Was to Tiara Many Away from Iniquity. 

Prophecy: "The law of truth was in His mouth, and 
iniquity was not found in His lips: he walked with Me in 
peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity" 
(Mai. 2:6). 

Fulfillment: "The same day there was added unto 
them about three thousand souls" (Acts 2:41). "Howbeit 
many of them who heard the word believed; and the 



142 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

number of the men was about five thousand" (Acts 4:4). 
"And the multitude of them that believed were of one 
heart and one soul : neither said any of them that ought 
of the things which he possessed was his own; but they 
had all things common" (Acts 4:32). 

Note: Three thousand — five thousand — a multitude; 
that is how fast sinners were turned from iniquity; Mal- 
achi was not guessing — he was Inspired of God; our 
Bible is Inspired — it is from God ; therefore, Jesus is very 
Deity, is God's only Begotten Son, is our great Saviour 
from sin; we should accept Him with the faith and con- 
trition of children.

LESSON NO. 25 
(Prophecies by Christ) 

(1) Christ Was to Rise on the Third Day. 

Prophecy : "From that time forth began Jesus to show 
unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, 
and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and 
scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day" 
(Matt. 16:21). 

Fulfillment: "He is not here, but is risen: remem- 
ber how He spoke unto you when he was yet in Galilee, 
saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands 
of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise 
again" (Luke 24:6, 7). 

Note: Old Testament prophets said He would rise 
from the dead, but Jesus told just when, the third day. 

(2) Christ Was to Be Crucified by Gentiles. 

Prophecy: "And shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to 
mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him : and the third 
day He shall rise again" (Matt. 20:19). 

Fulfillment: "Then the soldiers, when they had cruci- 
fied Jesus, took His garments, and made four parts, to 
every soldier a part; and also His coat; now the coat was 
without seam, woven from the top to the bottom" (Jno. 
19:23). "Now when the centurion, and they that were 
with Him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those 
things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly 
this was the Son of God" (Matt. 27:54). 

Note: The centurion here, a Roman, had charge of 
the four Roman soldiers that crucified Him; He was cruci- 



144 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

fied by Gentiles, at the request of the Jews; yes, there 
were four soldiers" (Jno. 19:23). 

(3) They Were to Let Christ Have the Colt. 

Prophecy: "Go your way into the village over against 
you : and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a 
colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring 
him. And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say 
ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he 
will send him hither" (Mark 11:2, 3). 

Fulfillment: "And certain of them that stood there 
said unto them, what do ye, loosing the colt? and they 
said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they 
let them go. And they brought the colt to Jesus" (Mark 
11:5-7). 

Note: Jesus was prophesied; He also prophesied; 
He is the very Son of God; He is Deity. 

(4) Christ after His Resurrection Was to Meet the 
Apostles in Galilee. 

Prophecy: "But after I am risen again, I will go be- 
fore you into Galilee" (Matt. 26:32). 

Fulfillment: "Then the eleven disciples went away 
into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed 
them. And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him" 
(Matt. 28:16, 17). 

Note : He told them where He would see them after 
His resurrection; they saw Him there; what think ye of 
Christ? 

(5) No Man Was Ever to Eat of the Fig Tree Again. 

Prophecy: "No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for- 
ever" (Mark 11:14). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 145 

Fulfillment: "And in the morning, as they passed by, 
they saw the fig tree dried up by the roots" (Mark 11 :20) . 

Note : Only the Son of God could have killed the tree ; 
no man could have done it; He is the Christ of God. 

(6) Jesus Said One of the Twelve Would Betray Him. 

Prophecy: "It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with 
Me in the dish" (Mark 14:20). 

Fulfillment: "And immediately, while He yet spake, 
cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great 
multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests 
and the scribes and the elders. And he that betrayed Him 
had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, 
that same is He: take Him, and lead Him away safely. 
And as soon as He was come, he goeth straightway to 
Him, and saith, Master, Master; and kissed Him" (Mark 
14:43-45). 

Note : The betrayal-kiss is one of the worst things on 
earth; Judas bit the hand that fed him; however, he did 
one noble deed — he hanged himself; many will not be as 
good as Judas till they do likewise. 

(7) Some of the Apostles Were to Be Killed. 

Prophecy: "I will send them prophets and apostles, 
and some of them they shall slay and persecute" (Luke 
11:49). 

Fulfillment: "Now about that time Herod the king 
stretched forth his hand to vex certain of the church. And 
he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And 
because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further 
to take Peter also" (Acts 12:1-3). 

Note: Nothing could be more literal; Jesus was a 
Prophet; He is the Son of God. 



146 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(8) The Holy Spirit Was to Tell the Apostles What 
to Say. 

Prophecy: 'The Holy Spirit shall teach you in the 
same hour what ye ought to say" (Luke 12:12). 

Fulfillment: "And they were all filled with the Holy 
Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the 
Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:4). 

Note: They were Spirit-filled, Spirit-led, just as Jesus 
said; He was not guessing. 

(9) Peter Was to Deny Christ Before the Crucifixion. 

Prophesy: "I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow 
this day before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou 
knowest Me" (Luke 22:34). 

Fulfillment: "But he denied before them all" (Matt. 
26:70). "Again he denied with an oath" (Matt. 26:72). 
"Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not 
the Man" (Matt. 26:74). 

Note: It came just as Jesus predicted; Peter's three 
denials make one of the blackest pages in history; are 
we sure we never deny Him? 

(10) The Holy Spirit Was to Be Given at Jerusalem. 

Prophecy: "Tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until 
ye be endued with power from on high" (Luke 24:49). 

Fulfillment : "Then returned they unto Jerusalem" 
(Acts 1:12). "And they were all filled with the Holy 
Spirit" (Acts 2:4). 

Note : Every prophecy we have mentioned of Christ's 
was literally fulfilled; He was no deceiver; He was the 
true Prophet That was to come; He is God's Son; He is 
our Saviour; He is all the word Deity means; we should 
accept Him with child-like faith.

(Prophecies concerning mortals) 

(1) Eli's Two Sons Were to Be Killed the Same Day. 

Prophecy: "And this shall be a sign unto thee, that 
shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; 
in one day they shall die both of them" (1 Sam. 2:34). 

Fulfillment: "And the ark of God was taken; and the 
two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain" (1 Sam. 
4:11). 

Note: These boys were priests; they corrupted the 
priesthood ; they committed fornication with women visit- 
ing the tabernacle (1 Sam. 2:22) ; they robbed (1 Sam. 
2:29) ; God set things in order; the prophecy came true. 

(2) God's Spirit Was to Come upon Saul. 

Prophecy: "And the Spirit of the Lord will come 
upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt 
be turned into another man" (1 Sam. 10:6). 

Fulfillment: "The Spirit of God came upon him, and 
he prophesied among them" (1 Sam. 10:10). 

Note: Samuel was a prophet and his prophecy here 
came true; the Bible is true. 

(3) SauPs Kingdom Not to Continue. 

Prophecy: "But now thy kingdom shall not continue" 
(1 Sam. 13:14). 

Fulfillment: "The Lord hath rent the kingdom out of 
thine hand, and given it to thy neighbor, even to David" 
(1 Sam. 28:17). 

Note : Saul would not obey God ; he corrupted the king- 



148 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

dom; God took it from him; God's leaders should keep a 
clean house. 

(4) Saul and Some of His Sons Were to Die in Battle. 
Prophecy: "Moreover the Lord will also deliver Israel 

with thee unto the hand of the Philistines : and to-morrow 
shall thou ?nd thy sons be with me: the Lord also shall 
deliver the host of Israel into the hand of the Philistines" 
(1 Sam. 28:19). 

Fulfillment: "And the Philistines followed hard upon 
Saul and upon his sons ; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, 
and Abinaclab, and Melchishua, Saul's sons" (1 Sam. 31:2). 
"And when his armorbearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell 
likewise upon his sword, and died with him" (1 Sam. 31 :5) . 

Note : Saul, by the power of the Devil, had a witch to 
call up dead Samuel to prophesy for him ; Samuel told him of 
his fate and that of his sons ; it literally came true ; Samuel 
was a true prophet of God ; our Bible is Inspired. 

(5) Not David, but His Son Was to Build God's House, 

the Temple. 

Prophecy: "And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou 
shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after 
thee, that shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will estab- 
lish his kingdom. He shall build an house for My name, 
and I will establish his kingdom forever" (2 Sam. 7 : 12,13) . 

Fulfillment: "Thus Solomon finished the house of the 
Lord, and the king's house" (2 Chron. 7:11). 

Note: The prophet Nathan told David He was not to 
build God's House, that his son was to do that; it came to 
pass as he said it; we have a great Bible. 

(6) The Sword Was Not to Depart from David's 
House. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 149 

Prophecy : "Now therefore the sword shall never depart 
from thine house ; because thou hast despised Me, and hast 
taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife" (2 Sam. 
12:10). 

Fulfillment: Now Absalom had commanded his ser- 
vants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon's heart is merry 
with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then 
kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be coura- 
geous, and be valiant. And the servants of Absalom did 
unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded" (2 Sam. 13 :28, 
29). 

Note: Amnon had forcefully committed fornication 
with his own sister (2 Sam. 13:1-18) ; he was killed for 
the crime ; it is but one proof that the sword never departed 
from David's house ; his son Absalom was killed (2 Sam. 18 : 
9-14) ; truly the sword never departed from David's house; 
the prophet Nathan made no mistake in his prophecy; the 
Bible is Inspired. 

(7) Josiah Was to Offer Men's Bones upon Jeroboam's 
Altar, and Destroy It. 

Prophecy: "And, behold, there came a man of God out 
of Judah by the word of the Lord unto Bethel : and Jero- 
boam stood by the altar to burn incense. And he cried 
against the altar in the word of the Lord, and said,0 altar, 
altar, thus saith the Lord; Behold, a child shall be born 
unto the house of David, Josiah by name ; and upon thee 
shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn 
incense upon thee, and men's bones shall be burnt upon 
thee" (1 Kings 13:1-3). 

Fulfillment: "Moreover the altar that was at Bethel, 
and the high place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who 



150 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

made Israel to sin, and made both that altar and the high 
place he broke down, and burned the high place, and 
stamped it small to powder, and burned the grove. And 
as Josiah turned himself, he spied the sepulchres that were 
there in the mount, and sent, and took the bones out of the 
sepulchres, and burned them upon the altar and polluted 
it, according to the word of the Lord which the man of God 
proclaimed, who proclaimed these words" (2 Kings 23: 
15, 16). 

Note : It was about three hundred and fifty years before 
the birth of Josiah that the man of God told Jeroboam that 
he would be born; he was born and named as prophesied-; 
he burned men's bones upon that same altar; he destroyed 
it just as prophesied;. surely the Bible is Inspired. 

(8) Jeroboam's Son Was to Die When His Mother 
Entered the City. 

Prophecy : "Arise thou therefore, get thee to thine own 
house : and when thy feet enter into the city, the child shall 
die" (1 Kings 14:12). 

Fulfillment: "And Jeroboam's wife arose, and de- 
parted, and came to Tirzah: and when she came to the 
threshold of the door, the child died" (1 Kings 14:17). 

Note: Abijah, son of Jeroboam, fell sick; Jeroboam had 
his wife to disguise herself and go to the prophet Ahijah 
at Shiloh and learn whether or not the child would die ; the 
prophet told her when he would die; the child died just as 
he said; he was a true prophet; the Bible is Inspired. 

(9) House of Jerohoam Was to Be Cut Off. 

Prophecy: "Moreover the Lord shall raise Him up a 
king over Israel, who shall cut off the house of Jeroboam 
that day" (1 Kings 14:14). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 151 

Fulfillment: "And it came to pass, when he (Baasha) 
reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left 
not Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed 
him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which He spake 
by His servant Ahijah the Shilonite" (1 Kings 15:29). 

Note : Was this literal as the prophet had said ? Is not 
the Bible from God? What are we going to do with it? 

(10) The Ten Tribes of Israel were to Be Destroyed 
and Scattered. 

Prophecy: 'Tor the Lord shall smite Israel, as a reed 
is shaken in the water, and He shall root up Israel out of 
this good land, which He gave to their fathers, and shall 
scatter them beyond the river, because they have made their 
groves, provoking the Lord to anger. And He shall give 
Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin, 
and who made Israel to sin" (1 Kings 14:15, 16). 

Fulfillment: "In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of 
Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into 
Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the 
river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes" (2 Kings 
17:6). "Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, 
and removed them out of His sight ; there was none left but 
the tribe of Judah only" (2 Kings 17:18). 

Note: It was about one hundred and thirty-five years 
before it took place that the prophet Ahijah said it would 
take place ; Israel, the ten tribes, went into Assyrian bond- 
age about one hundred and thirty years before the kingdom 
of Judah went into the great Babylonian captivity; the 
word of God's prophets never failed; the Bible is Inspired.

(Prophecies concerning mortals) 

( 1 ) The House ©f King Baasha V/as to Be Destroyed. 

Prophecy: "Behold, I will take away the posterity of 
Baasha, and the posterity of his house ; and I will make thy 
house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebad" (1 
Kings 16:3). 

Fulfillment: "And it came to pass, when he began to 
regin, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the 
house of Baasha" (1 Kings 16:11). "Thus did Zimri destroy 
all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the Lord, 
which he spake against Baasha by Jehu the prophet" (1 
Kings 16:12). 

Note : This prophecy came to pass in short order ; it 
came exactly as prophesied; we just have to know that the 
Bible is Inspired ; it is harder now to disbelieve than it is 
to believe; we cannot keep from believing it. 

(2) It Was Not to Rain for Years. 

Prophecy: "And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the 
inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of 
Israel liveth, before Whom I stand, there shall not be dew 
nor rain these years, but according to My word" (1 Kings 
17:1). 

Fulfillment: "Elias was a man subject to like passions 
as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain : 
and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years 
and six months" (Jas. 5:17). 

Note : That is literal enough ; God spoke to wicked 
Israel through the prophet ; His word did not fail. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 153 

(3) Rain Was Prophesied. 

Prophecy: "And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, 
eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain" 
(1 Kings 18:41). 

Fulfillment: "And it came to pass in the mean while, 
that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there 
was a great rain" (1 Kings 18:45). "And he prayed again, 
and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her 
fruit" (Jas. 5:18). 

Note: It does not pay to disbelieve God's prophets; 
His word has never failed ; the Bible is from above. 

(4) Ahab Was to Overcome the Syrians. 

Prophecy: "And, behold, there came a prophet unto 
Ahab king of Israel, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Hast thou 
seen all this great multitude? behold, I will deliver it into 
thine hand this day; and thou shalt know that I am the 
Lord" (1 Kings 20:13). 

Fulfillment: "And the king of Israel went out, and 
smote the horses and chariots, and slew the Syrians with 
a great slaughter" (1 Kings 20:21). 

Note : Ahab was wicked ; God made known this blessing 
to him to convince him that it is best to serve the true God ; 
the lesson did not last long. 

(5) The Syrians Were to War with Ahab Again at the 
Return of the Year. 

Prophecy : "And the prophecy came to the king of Israel, 
and said unto him, Go, strengthen thyself, and mark, and 
see what thou doest : for at the return of the year the king 
of Syria will come up against thee" (1 Kings 20:22). 

Fulfillment : "And it came to pass at the return of the 



154 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up 
to Aphek, to fight against Israel" (1 Kings 20:26). 

Note: Twice the prophecy had come true; it seems 
that Ahab ever would have obeyed the true God; we have 
greater evidence now; we do very little better than did 
Ahab. 

(6) Ahab Was to Be Killed. 

Prophecy: 'Thus saith the Lord, Because thou hast 
let go out of thy hand a man whom I appointed to utter 
destruction, therefore thy life shall go for his life, and thy 
people for his people" (1 Kings 20:42). "In the place 
where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy 
blood, even thine" (1 Kings 21 :19) . 

Fulfillment: "And a certain man drew a bow at a 
venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints 
of the harness" (1 Kings 22:34). "And one washed the 
chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his 
blood; and they washed his armor; according to the word 
of the Lord which He spake" (1 Kings 22:38). 

Note: God's word never failed; His prophet did not 
lie; we should believe the Bible; it is Inspired. 

(7) Ahab's House Was to Be Destroyed. 

Prophecy : "And I will make thine ( Ahab's) house like 
the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the 
house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the provocation 
wherewith thou hast provoked Me to anger, and made 
Israel to sin" (1 Kings 21:22). 

Fulfillment: "So Jehu slew all that remained of 
the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and 
his kinfolks, and his priests, until he left him none remain- 
ing" (2 Kings 10:11). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 155 

Note : He went as other sinners go ; his life had a bad 
ending. 

(8) Dogs Were to Eat Jezebel hy the Wall of Jezreel. 

Prophecy: "And of Jere'bel also spake the Lord, say- 
ing, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel" 
(1 Kings 21:23). 

Fulfillment: "And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, 
Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired 
her head, and looked out at a window. And as Jehu 
entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who 
slew his master? And he lifted up his face to the window, 
and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked 
out to him two or three eunuchs. And he said, Throw her 
down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood 
was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he 
trode her under foot. And when he was come in he did 
eat and drink and said, Go, see nov/ this cursed woman, 
and bury her: for she is a king's daughter, and they went 
to bury her but they found no more of her than the skull, 
and the foot, and the palms of her hands. Wherefore 
they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the 
word of the Lord, which He spake by His servant Elijah 
the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs 
eat the flesh of Jezebel. And the carcass of Jezebel shall 
be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of 
Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel" (2 
Kings 9:30-37). 

Note: A more wicked woman than Jezebel never 
lived; she tried to kill all of God's prophets; she painted 
her face and "primped" her hair in an effort to allure 
Jehu; it will be a great day when modern girls quit emu- 



156 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

lating wicked Jezebel by painting their faces; she died 
where Elijah the prophet said she would; she was eaten 
by dogs as he said. Is the Bible Inspired? What shall we 
do with the Bible? 

(9) King Ahaziah Was to Die. 

Prophecy: "And he said unto him, Thus saith the 
Lord, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to inquire 
of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is 
no God in Israel to inquire of His word? therefore thou 
shalt not come down off that bed on which thou are gone 
up, but shall surely die" (2 Kings 1:16). 

Fulfillment: "So he died according to the word of 
the Lord which Elijah had spoken" (2 Kings 1:17). 

Note : This sick man worshipped idols— not the true 
God; he received no help from God in his sickness; he 
died as Elijah said he would; God's word is unfailing. 

(10) Abundance of Water Prophesied. 

Prophecy: "For thus saith the Lord, Ye shall not see 
wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be 
filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your 
cattle, and your beasts" (2 Kings 3:17). 

Fulfillment: "And they rose up early in the morning, 
and the sun shone upon the water" (2 Kings 3:22). 

Note : It was the prophet Elisha that prophesied this 
water; it came as he said; surely all of us will believe the 
Bible now; we show by our lives how much we believe it.

LESSON NO. 28 
(Prophecies concerning mortals) 

(1) Leprosy Was to Be Cured. 

Prophecy: "And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, 
saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh 
shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean" (2 
Kings 5:10). 

Fulfillment: "Then went he down, and dipped him- 
self seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the 
man of God ; and his flesh came again like unto the flesh 
of a little child, and he was clean" (2 Kings 5 :14) . 

Note : There is no faking with leprosy ; counterfeit 
healers never attempt to cure it; this is God's power that 
healed the leprosy; the prophecy came true; we believe 
the Bible. 

(2) Plenty of Food Prophesied. 

Prophecy: "Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the 
Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To-morrow about this time 
shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two 
measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria" 
(2 Kings 7:1). 

Fulfillment: "And the people went out, and spoiled 
the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was 
sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, 
according to the word of the Lord" (2 Kings 7 :16) . 

Note: There was a famine in Samaria — no hope for 
food; they were embittered against Elisha for prophesy- 
ing plenty of bread for the next day; but his prophecy 
came true; we just have to believe the Bible; it is from 
God. 



158 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(3) Joash Was to Smite the Syrians Three Times. 

Prophecy : "And the man of God was wroth with him, 
and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; 
then hadest thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed 
it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice" (2 
Kings 13:19). 

Fulfillment: "And Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took 
again out of the hand of Benhadad the son of Hazael the 
cities, which he had taken out of the hand of Jehoahaz 
his father by war. Three times did Joash beat him, and 
recovered the cities of Israel" (2 Kings 13:25). 

Note: The prophet Elisha was in his death-sickness; 
he wanted Joash to beat on the ground the number of 
times he wanted to overcome the Syrians; he hit on the 
ground but three times; he should have hit more times; 
the prophecy came true. 

(4) The Assyrian Army Was to Fail. 

Prophecy: "Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning 
the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city 
(Jerusalem), nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before 
it with shield, nor cast a bank against it. By the way 
that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not 
come into this city, saith the Lord. For I will defend this 
city, to save it, for Mine own sake, and for My servant 
David's sake" (2 Kings 19:32-34). 

Fulfillment: "And it came to pass that night, that 
the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of 
the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: 
and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they 
were all dead corpses. So Sennacherib king of Assyria 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 159 

departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh" 
(2 Kings 19:35, 36). 

Note : The Assyrians had made great boasts for their 
gods, and against the true God ; they boasted to their own 
undoing; we better accept and strictly obey the true God ; 
His word never fails. 

(5) The Kingdom of Judah Was to Go into Babylon- 
ian Captivity. 

Prophecy: ''And Isaiah said unto Hezekiah, Hear the 
word of the Lord. Behold, the days come, that all that is 
in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up 
in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: 
nothing shall be left, saith the Lord" (2 Kings 20 :16, 17). 

Fulfillment: "And he carried away Jehoiachin to 
Babylon, and the king's mother, and the king's wives, and 
his officers, and the mighty of the land, those carried he 
into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon" (2 Kings 24: 
15). "And the king of Babylon smote them, and slew 
them at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah w T as 
carried away out of their land" (2 Kings 25:21). 

Note : They had been in many other captivities — short 
ones — but from them they did not learn the needed les- 
son; this one was to be severe; it came as Isaiah said. 

(6) The Sacred Vessels of the Temple Were to Be 
Carried to Babylon. 

Prophecy : "Yea, thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God 
of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house 
of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Judah and of 
Jerusalem; They shall be carried to Babylon, and there 
shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith the 
Lord" (Jer. 27:21, 22). 



160 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: ''And the pots, and the shovels, and the 
snuffers, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass 
wherewith they ministered, took they away. And the 
firepans, and the bowls, and such things as were of gold, 
in gold, and of silver, in silver, the captain of the guard 
took away" (2 Kings 25:14, 15). 

Note: This was prophesied just a few years before it 
came to pass; but, it came to pass; the Bible is true. 

(7) Judah Was to Serve the Babylonians Seventy- 
Years. 

Prophecy : "And this whole land shall be a desolation, 
and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the 
king of Babylon seventy years" (Jer. 25:11). 

Fulfillment: "And them that had escaped from the 
sword carried he away to Babylon ; where they were ser- 
vants to him and his sens until the reign of the kingdom of 
Persia: to fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of 
Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her Sabbaths: for 
as long as she lay desolate she kept Sabbath, to fulfil 
threescore and ten years" (2 Chron. 36:20, 21). "Then 
the angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord of hosts, 
how long wilt Thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on 
the cities of Judah, against which Thou hast had indignation 
these threescore and ten years" (Zech. 1:12). "Speak 
unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, 
When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh 
month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto 
Me, even to Me" (Zech. 7:5)? 

Note: Yes, the prophet said Judah would be in Baby- 
lonian bondage seventy years; they were there exactly 
that long; what have you to say of the Bible and its 
Author, God? 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 161 

(8) A Remnant of Judah Left by the Babylonians 
Were to Go into Egypt. 

Prophecy: "The burden of the beasts of the south: 
into the land of trouble and anguish, from whence come 
the young and old lion, the viper and the fiery flying ser- 
pent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of 
young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of 
camels, to a people that shall not profit them. For the 
Egyptians shall help them in vain, and to no purpose" 
(Isa. 80:6, 7). 

Fulfillment: And all the people, both small and great, 
and the captains of the armies, arose, and came to Egypt; 
for they were afraid of the Chaldees" (2 Kings 25:26). 

Note: The Babylonians, or Chaldees, had carried 
away into Babylon all the best people of the land; they 
set a governor over the few that were left in the land of 
Judah (2 Kings 25:22) ; they soon killed Gedaliah their 
ruler, and went into Egypt (2 Kings 25:22-26) ; prophecy 
from God never fails to come true. 

(9) The Jews Were to Return to Their Homeland 
after Seventy Years. 

Prophecy: "For thus saith the Lord, That after seven- 
ty years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and 
perform My good word toward you, in causing you to 
return to this place" (Jer. 29:10). "For I will take you 
from among the heathen, and gather you out of all coun- 
tries, and will bring you into your own land" (Eze. 36 :24) . 

Fulfillment: "Now these are the children of the prov- 
ince that went up out of the captivity, of those who had 
been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of 
Babylon had carried away unto Babylon, and came again 



162 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

into Jerusalem and Judah, every one unto his city" (Ezra 
2:1). 

Note : This was the first movement of the Jews from 
Babylon back to Canaan; there were other movements 
from time to time; all of Ezra and Nehemiah should be 
read in this connection. 

(10) Jerusalem Was to Be Burned after the Jews 
Were Carried to Babylon. 

Prophecy: "For I have set My face against this city 
for evil, and not for good, saith the Lord : it shall be given 
into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it 
with fire" (Jer. 21:10). 

Fulfillment : "And he burnt the house of the Lord, and 
the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and 
every great man's house burnt he with fire (2 Kings 25 :9) . 

Note : This is literal enough ; it was to be burnt with 
fire; it was; God's word never fails; the Bible is truly 
from God.

(Prophecies concerning mortals) 

(1) Cyrus Was to Free Captive Israel from Babylon- 
ian Bondage. 

Prophecy: 'That saith of Cyrus, He is My Shepherd, 
and shall perform all My pleasure" (Isa. 44:28). "I have 
raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his 
ways: he shall build My city, and he shall let go My cap- 
tives, not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts" 
(Isa. 45:13). 

Fulfillment: "Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The 
Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the 
earth; and He hath charged me to build Him an house at 
Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of 
all His people? his God be with him, and let him go up to 
Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the 
Lord God of Israel (He is the God), which is in Jerusa- 
lem" (Ezra 1:2, 3). 

Note : Cyrus was named by the Lord one hundred and 
fifty years before he was born (Isa. 45:1-3) ; God said 
through the prophet Isaiah that Cyrus would free captive 
Israel; he did, and did it at the exact time they were to be 
free — after seventy years of captivity; who can disbelieve 
the Bible? 

(2) Cyrus Was to See That Jerusalem Was Rebuilt. 

Prophecy: 'That saith of Cyrus, He is My shepherd, 
and shall perform all My pleasure : even saying to Jeru- 
salem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy founda- 
tion shall be laid" (Isa. 44:28). 



164 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Fulfillment: 'Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The 
Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the 
earth; and He hath charged me to build Him an house at 
Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of 
all His people? his God be with him, and let him go up 
to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the 
Lord God of Israel (He is the God), which is in Jerusalem. 
And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourn- 
eth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with 
gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill 
offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem" (Ezra 
1:2-4). 

Note : It is wonderful how these prophecies were ful- 
filled to the very letter; God's Book takes care of itself; 
all we need is to know it. 

(3) The Sacred Temple Vessels Were to Be Brought 
Back from Babylon. 

Prophecy: "Yea, thus saith the Lord God of hosts, the 
God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the 
house of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Judah 
and of Jerusalem; They shall be carried to Babylon, and 
there shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith 
the Lord ; then will I bring them up, and restore them to 
this place" (Jer. 27:21, 22). 

Fulfillment: "All the vessels of gold and of silver 
were five thousand and four hundred. All these did 
Sheshbazzar bring up with them of the captivity that 
were brought up from Babylon to Jerusalem" (Ezra 1 :11). 
Note : It is truly marvelous how that every prophecy 
was fulfilled to the very letter; God is the Author of the 
Bible; we do believe every word of the Book.

(4) Babylon Was to Be Destroyed. 

Prophecy: ''And it shall come to pass, when seventy 
years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of 
Babylon, and that nation, saith the Lord, for their iniquity, 
and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual 
desolation" (Jer. 25:12). 

Fulfillment: "This is the interpretation of the thing: 
MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished 
it" (Dan. 5:26). 

Note : Every student of History knows that after the 
seventy years of Jewish captivity in Babylon that kingdom 
was taken by the Medes and Persians; the city of Babylon 
was destroyed; God said it will never be rebuilt (Isa. 13: 
1-22) ; it never has been; God's word is unfailing. 

(5) It Was Prophesied That the Just Shall Live by 
Faith. 

Prophecy: "The just shall live by faith" (Hab. 2:4). 

Fulfillment: "For therein is the righteousness of God 
revealed from faith to faith : as it is written, The just shall 
live by faith" (Rom. 1:17). 

Note : The whole Christian system is based upon faith ; 
anything without faith is sin (Rom. 14:23) ; faith is made 
perfect by works (Jas. 2:22) ; the Prophet was not mis- 
taken when he told of this great faith system; the Bible 
never fails us. 

(Prophecies being fulfilled) 

(1) Killing the Old and New Testaments — the Bible. 

Prophecy : "And when they shall have finished their 
testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the Bottomless 
Pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome 



166 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in 
the street of the great City, which spiritually is called 
Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And 
they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations 
shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and 
shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And 
they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, 
and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; 
because these two Prophets tormented them that dwell on 
the earth" (Rev. 11:7-10). 

Fulfillment: We are unable to give Bible proofs for 
prophecies being fulfilled before our eyes — we need no 
such proof. We wish to list the different things said of 
these Old and New Testaments, as follows: 

(a) They are called "Two Witnesses" (Rev. 11:3). 

(b) They are called "Two Olive Trees" (Rev. 11:4). 

(c) They are called "Two Candlesticks" (Rev. 11:4). 

(d) They are called "Two Prophets" (Rev. 11:10). 

(e) The Beast from the bottomless pit wars against 
them (Rev. 11:7). 

(f) This Beast will finally kill Them (Rev. 11:7). 

(g) They are to be dead three and a half days — that 
many years (Rev. 11:9-11; Num. 14:34; Eze. 4:5, 6). 

(h) There is to be great joy over their death (Rev. 
11:10). 

(i) Many presents will be given because of their 
death (Rev. 11:10). 

(j) They will live again (Rev. 11:11). 

(k) The Church-heaven will call them back (Rev. 
11:12). 

There is an organized effort going on now to kill the 
Bible by destroying faith in it; that is the part of the 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 167 

prophecy being fulfilled at this time; finally they will 
succeed; after three and a half years dead, the Bible will 
come back into its own, and be more powerful than ever; 
they are opposing the Bible because it torments sinners; 
any real student can see the efforts made in various 
schools to kill the Bible ; a prophetic day represents one 
year (Eze. 4:5, 6). 

(2) War in the Church-Heaven. 

Prophecy: "And there was war in heaven: Michael 
and his angels fought against the Dragon ; and the Dragon 
fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was 
there place found any more in heaven. And the great 
Dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, 
and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast 
out into the earth, and His angels were cast out with him. 
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come 
salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and 
the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is 
cast down, which accused them before our God day and 
night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, 
and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not 
their lives unto the death" (Rev. 12:7-11). 

Fulfillment: This also is being fulfilled right before 
our eyes. We will number in the following the various 
things connected with this war in the Church-heaven : 

(a) This war takes place between the bad and the good 
(Rev. 12:7). 

(b) The wicked fail finally (Rev. 12:8) 

(c) The Dragon has become an "old" serpent since he 
appeared in Eden, showing it is a long time after that (Rev. 
12:9). 



168 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(d) This Dragon had deceived the whole world before 
this war was begun, and before it was over (Rev. 12:9). 

(e) The Dragon and his followers are cast out "into the 
earth" — not "down to the earth" — showing the casting 
out takes place on this earth (Rev. 12:9). 

(f) Salvation takes place in this heaven after getting 
the Devil out— they do not need salvation in that heaven up 
yonder (Rev. 12:10). 

(g) The Dragon warred by "accusing the brethren", 
showing it takes place where there is a "brotherhood", 
showing it is on this earth (Rev. 12:10). 

(h) They overcome the Dragon in this war by the 
"blood of the Lamb", and they do not have blood in that 
kingdom up yonder (1 Cor.l5:50), showing it is down here 
the war is fought (Rev. 12:11). 

(i) The second way the Dragon is overcome in this war 
is by the "word of their testimony", by preaching the word, 
the gospel, showing again that it takes places down here 
(Rev. 12:11). 

(j) The third way they overcome the Dragon in this 
war is "they loved not their lives unto the death" — by dying 
for Christ and for the Bible, showing it takes place in this 
world, as they have no graveyards in that kingdom up yon- 
der—sin did not originate in that heaven up there (Rev. 
12:11). 

In Rev. 11:15 we find that the heaven mentioned in 
the Book of Revelation is down where the earth is — "the 
kingdoms of THIS (not YONDER) world are become the 
kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ". Again, in Rev. 
19:11-21 we learn that the war in heaven is carried on 
with the wicked kings of this earth and with their armies, 
showing again that the war in this heaven takes place on 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 169 

this earth. There are nine different heavens described in 
the Bible, and this one in the Book of Revelation is the 
Church. Therefore, the war of right against wrong con- 
tinues in the Church-heaven now. Satan will be cast out 
of the Church-heaven. 

(3) Satan Trying to Devour Christ When He Is 
Brought Forth by the Church. 

Prophecy: ''And She (the Church-Woman clothed 
with the sun) being with Child cried, travailing in birth, 
and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another 
wonder in heaven (the Church) ; and behold a great red 
Dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven 
crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part 
of the stars of heaven (members of the Church) , and didst 
cast them to the earth (made them quit the Church) : and 
the Dragon stood before the Woman (the Church-woman) 
which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her Child 
(Christ) as soon as He was born. And She brought forth 
a Man Child, Who was to rule all nations with a rod of 
Iron (the Bible) : and Her Child was caught up unto God, 
and to His throne" (Rev. 12:2-5). 

Fulfillment: This is being fulfilled before our eyes; it 
has been going on ever since the Church was established; 
it will go on till the Devil is finally put down by Christ 
(Rom. 16:20) ; Christ is represented in the Bible as hav- 
ing at least four different births, as follows : 

. (a) He was born of the "Womb of the morning" — the 
morning's being His mystical mother — - such a birth's 
representing the approach of a new day for humanity 
under Christ (Psa. 110:1-4). 

(b) He was born of Mary — His physical mother (Matt. 
1:18-25). 



170 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(c) He was born of the grave — "The Firstborn from 
the dead" — the grave was His mother (Col. 1 :18) . 

(d) He is born of the Church — the Church is His Spir- 
itual mother — She brings Him forth in the gospel preached 
in new communities where He was never heard of before — 
everywhere the gospel is preached and Christ is accepted, 
He is "brought forth" — born— as the Son of God (Rev. 
12:2-5). This is going on now everywhere the Church is 
evangelizing, but Satan stands there ready to devour the 
Christ in every place He is brought forth — born (Rev. 12: 
4; Matt. 13:18-22). 

(4) Wireless Messages Prophesied. 

Prophecy : "Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; 
and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber : for a bird of the 
air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall 
tell the matter" (Ecle. 10:20). 

Fulfillment: "A bird of the air shall carry the voice" 
was never spoken of any physical bird — such cannot carry 
the human "voice" — it is being done over the radio. 
Again : "That which hath wings shall tell the matter" was 
not spoken of a physical bird, as it cannot tell what man 
says — it is being done by the radio — the real "bird of the 
air." 

(5) The Automobile Prophesied. 

Prophecy : "The shield of his mighty men is made red, 
the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with 
flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir 
trees shall be terribly shaken. The chariots shall rage in 
the streets, they shall justle one against another in the 
broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run 
like the lightnings" (Nahum 2:3, 4). 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 171 

Fulfillment: Note the following: 

(a) Broad ways were to be built for these chariots, 
automobiles — they are (Nahum 2:4). 

(b) They were to rage in the streets — they do (Nahum 
2:4). 

(c) They were to have flaming torches — head lights — 
they do (Nahum 2:3). 

(d) They were to mark a day of God's ''preparation" — 
for war — they do (Nahum 2:3). 

(e) They were to justle against each other in the "broad 
ways" — they do (Nahum 2:4). 

(f ) They were to seem like "torches" when seen coming 
— they literally do at night now (Nahum 2 :4) . 

(g) They were to run like lightning — they do — some 
over two hundred miles per hour — will yet run faster 
(Nahum 2:4). 

All seven of the things told by Nahum about the 
"chariots" here we literally have in the automobile. Who 
can deny Nahum's being Inspired of God? He told hun- 
dreds of years ago the very thing that was invented in 
our day, nothing ever like it before — the Bible most surely 
is Inspired. 



172 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 



LESSON NO. 30 

(Prophecies being fulfilled) 

THE FLYING MACHINE 

(1) A People as Swift as the Eagle Prophesied. 

Prophecy : "The Lord shall bring a nation against thee 
from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle 
flieth" (Deut. 28:49). 

Fulfillment: Not till recent years were people able to 
make the speed of an eagle, but literally they do now. 
This prophcey was made at least thirty-four hundred 
years ago. Was Moses guessing? Was he Inspired? Is the 
Bible Inspired? 

(2) It Was Prophesied That Men Would Fly Over 
Our Heads. 

Prophecy: "Thou hast caused men to ride over our 
heads" (Psa. 66:12). 

Fulfillment: Literally men are riding over our heads 
just as David prophesied; the Bible is Inspired; we do be- 
lieve it. 

(3) It Was Prophesied That as Birds Flying God 
Would Defend Jerusalem* 

Prophecy : "As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts 
defend Jerusalem; defending also He will deliver it; and 
passing over He will preserve it" (Isa. 31 :5) . 

Fulfillment: In the World-War Jerusalem was taken 
by a flying squadron, and not a gun was fired, not a life 
was lost, and Jerusalem was preserved, no havoc made, 
just as the prophet Isaiah predicted. Who can deny his 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 173 

being Inspired? He was that same prophet that told of 
the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ; we do believe the 
Bible. 

(4) It Was Prophesied That Men Would Fly as 
Clouds and as Birds. 

Prophecy: "Who are these that fly as a cloud, and 
as the doves to their windows" (Isa. 60 :8) ? 

Fulfillment: Men are now flying as clouds, even 
above the clouds, and as the doves; Isaiah was Inspired 
of God when he wrote this prophecy; he was Inspired also 
when He wrote of Jesus and His Church. 

(5) It Was Prophesied That Men Would Make Better 

Speed than Do the Eagles. 

Prophecy: "Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and 
his chariots shall be as a whirlwind : his horses are swifter 
than eagles" (Jer. 4:13). 

Fulfillment: No eagle can make the speed that men 
make now with their flying horses; Jeremiah's prophecy 
has literally been fulfilled before our own eyes; then we 
should believe all he wrote; the Bible is Inspired. 

. (6) It ¥/as Prophesied That Man Would Fly, and 

Spread His Wings Over Moab. 

Prophecy: "For thus saith the Lord; Behold, he shall 
fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings over Moab" 
(Jer. 48:40). 

Fulfillment: Before our eyes we have men flying; 
they spread their wings anywhere they please ; Jeremiah 
was Inspired ; the Bible is true. 

(7) It Was Prophesied That Man Would Fly, and 
Spread His Wings Over Bozrah. 



174 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

Prophecy: "Behold, he shall come up and fly as the 
eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah" (Jer. 49:22). 

Fulfillment: Man flies as the eagle; he spreads his 
wings; Jeremiah was Inspired; so is the Bible. 

(8) It Was Prophesied That One Would Come 
Against the Wicked as an Eagle. 

Prophecy: "He shall come as an eagle against the 
house of the Lord, because they have transgressed My 
covenant, and trespassed against My law" (Hosea 8:1). 

Fulfillment: Such speed is made against the wicked 
in our own day; it took place in the late war; so will it 
continue; the Bible is from God. 

(9) It Was Prophesied that Horsemen Would Fly as 
the Eagle. 

Prophecy: "Their horsemen shall spread themselves, 
and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly 
as the eagle that hasteth to eat" (Hab. 1:8). 

Fulfillment: Men are using flying horses, and they 
make the speed of hungry eagles hastening to eat; the 
prophet was not guessing; every word of the Bible is true. 

(10) Flying Horses Prophesied. 

Prophecy: "And there came out of the smoke locusts 
upon the earth : and unto them was given power, as the 
scorpions of the earth have power. And it was com- 
manded them that they should not hurt the grass of the 
earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree ; but only 
those men who have not the seal of God in their fore- 
heads. And to them it was given that they should not 
kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: 
and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 175 

he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek 
death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and 
death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts 
were like unto horses prepared unto battle ; and on their 
heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces 
were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair 
of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And 
they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron ; and 
the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of 
many horses running to battle. And they had tails like 
unto scorpions; and there were stings in their tails: and 
their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a 
king over them, who is the angel of the bottomless pit, 
whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the 
Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. And the number 
of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand 
thousand : and I heard the number of them. And thus I 
saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, 
having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone : 
and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; 
and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brim- 
stone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by 
the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which 
issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their 
mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto 
serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt" 
(Rev. 9:3-11, 16-19). 

Fulfillment: This is all literally fulfilled in our flying 
machines. In the following we outline a growing descrip- 
tion of these locusts : 

(a) They came out of smoke — blackness (Rev. 9:3). 

(b) They had scorpion-power (Rev. 9:3). 



176 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 

(c) At first — at a great distance from John — they 
looked like locusts (Rev. 9:3). 

(d) They were not to hurt grass and trees (Rev. 9:4). 

(e) They were to hurt those without God's seal (Rev. 
9:4). 

(f ) At first they were not to kill, but only torment men 
five months — prophetic months — 150 days — that many 
years (Rev. 9:5; Num. 14:34; Eze. 4:5, 6). 

(g) They were to cause men to wish to die (Rev. 9:6). 
(h) When the locusts got closer to John they looked like 

war-horses, battle-horses (Rev. 9:7). 

(i) They appeared to have gold crowns upon their heads 
— later we shall see it was fire from their mouths (Rev. 
9:7). 

(j) They appeared to have human faces — men were 
driving them, we shall later see (Rev. 9 :7) . 

(k) They appeared to have feminine hair — it was fire 
streaming, we shall learn later (Rev. 9:8). 

(1) They appeared to have the teeth of lions — later we 
shall see they were streams of fire from their mouths 
(Rev. 9:8). 

(m) They had breastplates of iron protecting them 
from guns (Rev. 9:9). 

(n) They had wings — were flying horses — were flying 
machines, as they got close to John — they were flying in- 
to battle (Rev. 9:9). 

(o) They had long tails like scorpions — just as flying 
machines are made to-day — big horse-like bodies, and long 
tails— and stings in their tails — fire, later we shall see 
(Rev. 9:10). 

(p) They had the Devil as king over them, using them 
for war purposes (Rev. 9 :9-ll) . 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 177 

(q) There were to be in all two hundred million of these 
flying horses, flying machines (Rev. 9:16). 

(r) They had lion-like heads, and fire issued out of their 
mouths — liquid fire is being discharged from the mouths 
of flying machines now for war purposes (Rev. 9:17). 

(s) Fire issued out of both their mouths and tails, there 
being heads on their tails — one year ago our Government 
completed the first flying machine that discharges liquid 
fire from both ends for war purposes (Rev. 9 :18, 19) . 



178 THREE HUNDRED PROOFS 



CONCLUSION 

In this book we have studied two hundred and forty 
prophecies concerning Christ Himself, and proved by the 
New Testament were literally fulfilled. Next we studied ten 
prophecies by Christ Himself, and proved by the New 
Testament that they were fulfilled right to the letter, 
showing that He was a Prophet, a true One. Next we 
studied thirty-five prophecies concerning mortals, human 
beings, and we proved by the Bible that they were also 
fulfilled, making a grand total of two hundred and eighty- 
five prophecies that we proved by the Bible have been ful- 
filled exactly as predicted by the prophets. Last of all, we 
studied fifteen prophecies that are being fulfilled before 
our eyes, and the oldest of these was given about thirty- 
four hundred years ago, and the latest one is nearly nine- 
teen hundred years old. 

All of the prophets that prophesied the automobile, 
the wireless, and the flying machines foretold the coming 
of Christ, His wonderful life, the rise of His Church-king- 
dom, Its success in the world, and there is nothing left 
for us to do, but to believe all they said. Therefore, we 
accept the Bible from Genesis to Revelation as the In- 
spired word of God, and commend it to the whole wide 
world as a safe Guide into eternal life. The following 
are but a few of the things one has to believe to disbelieve 
the Bible: 

(a) That Mr. NOTHING made all inanimate matter — 
earth, moon, sun, stars. 

(b) That Mr. NOTHING has sense and power enough 
to direct and control the billions of planetoids, satellites, 
suns, and stars. 



THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED 179 

(c) That Mr. NOTHING had sense enough to compound 
minerals, putting in a certain, well counted number of 
each element, never missing the count, and from whose 
system man learned to compound. 

(d) That Mr. NOTHING had sense enough to put into 
each class of sounds an accurate, well counted number of 
vibrations, never missing the count. 

(e) That Mr. NOTHING made all animal life, mental- 
ity, and set bounds around, and walls between the species so 
that it is impossible to cross the entirely different species. 

(f ) That Mr. NOTHING gave to man the same common 
end that he gave to the OX. 

(g) That there is no God, no Christ, no Holy Spirit, no 
Inspired Bible, regardless of its containing multiplied hun- 
dreds of fulfilled prophecies. 

We wonder if it ever occurred to our readers that it 
takes infinitely more to disbelieve the Bible than it does 
to believe it. It is a billion times harder to believe that 
NOTHING did the first six things numbered in the fore- 
going, than to believe that an all-wise, all-powerful, all- 
knowing God did them. Some believe that Mr. NOTHING 
made them — not so hard to believe when they make noth- 
ing of themselves through disbelief in God(!) — but we 
prefer believing in GOD, that He made all things, that by 
Him all things consist, that "of Him, and through Him, 
and to Him are all things" (Rom. 11:36). We happily 
accept the whole Bible with the faith of a child. What 
will you do about it? Heaven is waiting for your answer.

The Mirror-Book 

on 
ONE HUNDRED BIBLE WAYS TO BE A FOOL 

by 
John W. Tyndall, A. M., LL. D. 

Who would be a fool? No one, and yet the 
Bible describes exactly one hundred different 
kinds of fools, showing that nearly everybody is 
a fool, if not one kind he is another, a fool 
without knowing it, but this is the Mirror-Book 
in which he sees himself as others see him, as 
God sees him, and no longer does the foolish 
thing, making the book worth its weight in gold. 

If all parents would have their children read 
this book, it would correct more errors among 
them than any other book, except the Bible. 
Every line is as interesting as a novel, just 
gripping the child to the last word of the book, 
doing it with solid facts, which remake the life. 
No one, old or young, can read it without being 
made better, more careful in his every habit, 
making him no longer a fool. 

This book is great for all classes, but is 
specially rich in preaching material. Every min- 
ister should have it. It is cloth bound. Order

THE ORIGIN OF THE BLACK MAN 

By JOHN W. TYNDALL, A.M., LL.D. 

This is truly a book of marvels, as it sets forth 
the "ORIGIN OF THE BLACK MAN" as it is 
given in the Bible, not theory. There are about 
one hundred and fifty pages, nicely cloth bound, 
and the chapter headings are listed below: 

1. "Who was Cain's Wife?" The Bible tells. 

2. "Did the Black Man Come from Cain?" No! 

3. "Did the Black Man Come from Ham?" No! 

4. "The Origin of the White Man." A miracle. 

5. "The Origin of the Red Man." A miracle. 

6. "The Origin of the Yellow Man." A miracle. 

7. "The Origin of the Black Man." A miracle. 

8. "Ethiopia and the Ethiopians of the Bible." 

9. "Has the Black Man a Soul?" 

10. "The Black Man and Rape." 

11. "The Black Man and Lynching." 

12. "The Black Man and Theft." 

13. "The Black Man as a Servant." 

14. "Has the Black Man Succeeded?" 

15. "The Meaning of Racial Colors." 

16. "Who Will be White or Black in the Next World?" 

17. "Sons of God Marrying Daughters of Men." 

18. "The Generations of the Heavens and of the 

Earth." 

We think this is the greatest book on SOCI- 
OLOGY in print, except God's word, and this is 
based upon It. The first edition sold nearly as 
fast as the printer could make them, and the 
second edition is now ready. It is Revised and
